KIDS VOICES COUNT: Listening to Delaware's Children Talk About Tobacco
University of Delaware Center for Community Research and Service, Newark, DE
Kids Voices Count provides the teen perspective on a serious health issue. This interviewing and writing project was undertaken as a volunteer effort by the journalism students at Glasgow High School, under the supervision of their teacher Rachael Hunt. These young people spent several weeks during this school year interviewing their peers and middle school students in Wilmington, Dover and Seaford on the subject of youth smoking and use of tobacco products. The interviews were conducted with no adults present. They are pleased to present their thoughts on an issue that deeply impacts their lives and the well-being of their friends and their families.
