LINCOLN – Following an open application process for the 2019-20 term, 10 teens from across Nebraska will serve on the No Limits Youth Board, the states’ first youth-led Anti-Tobacco movement group.
According to a release from No Limits, 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 organize events such as the No Limits Activism Summit and the Kick Butts Day Rally at the Nebraska State Capitol to educate government officials and the general public.
Northeast Nebraska representatives include Kerrigan Hoesing, Shelby Underwood and Freedom Rogers of Hartington/Newcastle’; Kaylee Koch of Crofton; Rosie Nelson of O’Neill and Anna Ready of Logan View.
Other members of 2019-20 board are Jacey Anderson and Elaina Riley of Johnson-Brock; Lexus Ascencion of Grand Island and Rachel Waugh of Kearney.
This year’s No Limits Youth Board includes five returning members and five new representatives. No Limits is open to all Nebraska youth in grades 7-12.
