Calling All Finishers

NATIONAL SUMMIT ON YOUTH ACTIVISM IN ORLANDO, FL

WANNA COME TO ORLANDO?

JOIN US *FOR FREE* JULY 12 – 16

We’re looking for a ridiculously awesome group of 15- to 18-year-olds to join our revolution and become drivers of social change in communities across the U.S. If you're chosen, we'll fly you + your friends (+ a big group of people we chose from around the country) to Orlando, Florida, where you’ll all spend five days focusing on different ways to engage and educate your friends, classmates, teachers and community about tobacco products and their impact on the environment, public health, dating, social justice, pets and so much more.

In? Cool.

By July 16, you’ll have put together a presentation for your school or community about a topic of your choosing that’s relevant to tobacco products and their impact on what matters most to you. Plus, you’ll work with a team of media pros to learn the best ways to promote the project you create.

You’ll also meet with outgoing, fired up people your own age from all over the country who will help you brainstorm and discover new ways to empower your community.

Still sound good? Good. Let’s get into the nitty gritty.

how to apply

YOU NEED: 1-4 FRIENDS, A DUFFLE BAG

You’ll need to apply as part of a team of 2 to 5 people. Each of you will fill out your own application (which is at the bottom of this page, so send your friends the link to this page), but you'll need one team name so we know you're a team. What counts as a team? It can be you and one friend, you and a few friends, or a preexisting team or group – say, a club you’re in at school that focuses activism. You can't be on more than one team. 

Once you’ve got your team together, make sure that all team members are:

  • All enrolled in high school or a GED program
  • Ages 15 to 18 as of July 1st, 2016
  • Not funded or supported by the tobacco industry

About the application: We want to get a feel for what excites you and what type of final project/presentation you’d like to give to your friends, community or school. Why do you care about being a part of the generation that will help #FinishIT and end tobacco use for good?

Complete your application by Friday, May 6, in order to be eligible
