youth smoking prevention tour in Boise

truth, the nation's largest youth smoking prevention tour was in Boise this month to engage teens and educate them on the health and social consequences of tobacco use.

As part of a month-long initiative, the truth® tour will make more than 20 stops across 7 states this October, including visiting some communities for the first time ever. At each stop, the truth® crew members will:
- Create a fun and engaging atmosphere, allowing truth® crew members to discuss tobacco issues in a non-preachy way.
- Host fashion shows, dance contests, freestyle rap “battles”, and play educational games.
- Distribute truth® -branded gift items/”gear”, including: shorts, drawstring bags and long sleeve t-shirts. All of the items were created using images and designs cool enough for teens to wear, yet the gear still incorporates important messages about tobacco use and the tobacco industry.
