LINCOLN — Thirteen teens from across the state will lead No Limits, Nebraska’s youth-led anti-tobacco movement, three of those teens hail from Hartington-Newcastle School, Kalyn Martinson, Freedom Rogers and Kerrigan Hoesing. The young people were selected to serve on the No Limits Youth Board for the 2018–2019 term following an open application process. Youth board members develop strategy, messaging and tactics to help their peers understand how tobacco companies use manipulative marketing practices to target young people. The board helps to organize events such as the No Limits Activism Summit and the Kick Butts Day Rally at the Nebraska State Capitol.
No Limits Project Coordinator Molly Kincaid says Youth Board members play an essential role in raising awareness about Big Tobacco’s lies among their peers. “By leading No Limits, these teens gain valuable skills as well as the opportunity to affect real change in their communities and schools,” Kincaid said.
