Pierce County Youth in Governance Programs
Three 4-H Community Clubs wrote and received grants to work on tobacco sales to minors. They developed a variety of educational approaches including poster campaigns, postcard reminders of the rules for sales of tobacco to minors, and “Thank you for doing the right thing” artwork which reached retailers in three different cities or villages across Pierce County.
Pierce County Extension Community Partner Advisory Group includes two youth among its 20 citizen members. All have heard updates on Extension programming and offered input into issues Extension may address in the future.
