Emily believes she and other youth can make a difference and is using her voice and her dedication to prove it. Emily serves as President of Greenfield-Central High School's chapter of VOICE, Indiana's youth-led movement against the tobacco industry and its targeting of youth. Emily is currently collecting petitions for an initiative called "Don't Glam Tobacco" aimed at reducing youth exposure to smoking in movies. In early 2009, Emily testified in support of comprehensive, statewide smoke-free legislation before the House Public Policy Committee in the Indiana House of Representatives. Her testimony continues her strong dedication to smoke-free policies, including speaking at and recruiting peers to attend a town hall meeting on the issue.

Emily also has worked for effective enforcement of her school's tobacco-free campus policy and is advocating for a smoke-free day at her county fair. Additionally, Emily has submitted letters to the editor and written feature stories for her school newspaper to raise awareness about tobacco. According to one of her nominators, Emily is a "devoted, hardworking young woman" whose "drive, support and abilities define advocacy."

More than 400 public health, civic and business leaders will join me
