On Saturday, April 9th, 2016, Justine Sales of New Hartford, Victoria Hysell of Madison and Jordyn Camp of Eaton traveled to Toronto, Canada with Reality Check to speak their mind about smoking in youth-rated films: not only in the United States, but also in Canada.

Centered around the MTV Movie Awards that were aired Sunday, April 10, the youth of New York asked the Motion Picture Association of America to rate smoking in movies ‘R’.

The youth designed street savvy advocacy actions to make their message stick.  They increased awareness about the deadly effects of smoking in youth-rated films across the nation.
