An anti-tobacco campaign created by the North Cache Student Council was selected as the Real Noise competition winner for the state. A ceremony will take place at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 25, where the school will be presented with a $1,000 check. Following the ceremony, the student body will hear a performance by The Neon Trees, a band that just finished a tour with a performance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. The student council did all the work on their own with little encouragement, said Assistant Principal John Anderson. “So hats off to the 10 kids on Student Council,” Anderson said. The campaign included a media contest, and the winning media was broadcast over Cache Valley radio stations. It also included a day-long education process so the students could learn about the effects of tobacco. Throughout the day, students were invited to the front lawn in groups to hear information the student council had collected on the effects of tobacco. “They wanted to educate the students, and not just to tell them not to smoke or not to chew,” Anderson said. The day of tobacco education ended with a 5-k run and walk event. Anderson said 1,000 students participated as well as most of the school’s staff.
