Kids in Florida will take a stand against tobacco use during "Kick Butts Day" on March 21.
On Kick Butts Day, kids encourage their peers to be tobacco-free, reject tobacco companies' devious marketing, and urge elected officials to help make the next generation tobacco-free.
This year, Kick Butts Day is focusing attention on the progress the U.S. has made in reducing youth smoking and the actions needed to create the first tobacco-free generation.
Since 2000, the national smoking rate among high school students has fallen by 71 percent.
More than 1,000 events are planned across the United States for this annual day of youth activism, sponsored by the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids.
