WV Division of Tobacco Prevention



Raze is West Virginia's youth tobacco prevention and education program. Since 2001, students in grades 6-12 have participated in Raze crews in schools and community organizations as Scouts, 4-H, and religious organizations. Within crews, Raze members educate their peers, schools,and communities through tobacco education activities called "commotions".

We're on a mission to tear down tobacco lies and spread the truth about the dangers of smoking and vaping.

Each Raze crew receives a mini-grant to empower their activities and the adult advisior that lead Raze crews receive a personal stipend. Leadership and scholarship opportunities are offered to Raze members. To learn more visit the Raze website. Also check out the Instagram, and the Twitter page to learn more.

Raze is celebrating its 20th year in fighting big tobacco. Please visit the Raze website to learn more about upcoming celebrations.​
