Tobacco Coalition

Marquette County participates in Five Counties for Tobacco-Free Living along with Fond du Lac, Green Lake, Waushara and Washington Counties. Each month, representatives from Marquette County bring information from the larger group back to HCHY. Our current focus is that tobacco companies are using candy-flavored tobacco products to entice youth to start using other tobacco products. Our aim is to educate our government officials and local citizens on tobacco companies' harmful agenda.

We take part in Wisconsin Wins

The Wisconsin Wins (WI Wins) campaign is a science-based, state-level initiative designed to decrease youth access to tobacco products. WI Wins was launched in the spring of 2002 as part of a comprehensive approach to preventing youth access to tobacco.

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services contracts with local partners to conduct investigations to establish retailer compliance with the law. Local initiatives also include retailer education and training, media outreach and community education.

WI Wins uses positive reinforcement to reduce illegal tobacco sales to minors. It congratulates local clerks who do not sell tobacco to youth, while educating those who would. This approach creates community pride by reducing youth access to tobacco products and provides youth a chance to make a difference in their community.
