Meet Madison & Macey Hahn, YR’s
2022 Youth of the Year Winners
Twin sisters, Madison and Macey Hahn are seniors are F. J. Reitz High School. They were nominated for their involvement with Smokefree Communities by their VOICE Adult Ally Kim Likenhus. Madison and Macey were 2 of the 5 teens selected as founding members of the VOICE Core Leadership Team, a statewide youth program with a mission to engage, educate, and empower young people as leaders and advocates in their communities and celebrate tobacco and vape-free lifestyles.
During the Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids project called Take Down Tobacco, they wrote letters to Indiana Legislators urging them to pass policies that protect the health of teens in our state by raising the state cigarette tax, taxing e-cigarettes, and ending the sale of all flavored tobacco products and spoke to state senators directly. They set up a resource table at Reitz High School and asked peers to sign a petition urging legislators to pass policies that protect teen health, and they regularly present to middle school students to help correct the myths and misinformation surrounding the epidemic of youth vaping and e-cigarette use, with an emphasis on JUUL and disposable e-cigarettes.
