The Environmental Health Trust is dedicated to educating the public and especially our young people on cell phone safety. In this day and age of smartphones and tablets and apps, it is important that we reach our children and teenagers so that they can make healthy technology choices. This page documents the efforts of schools all over the nation to teach safer cell phone use. If you’re interested in starting one of your own school programs, please email us. Please join us in spreading this important information.

Annual Environmental Health Trust Student Art and Technology Contest in the Jackson Hole Schools and Community
Please check out the results of past years Environmental Health Trust Student Art and Technology Contest. The contest is designed to get children to dig deeper into the science around wireless technology and the safety measures that are important for them to embrace. With the explosion of wireless devices in families and schools today, EHT’s Safe Cell Phone Use Campaign is vital in bringing important information (some of which is included in very small print in the owner manuals of these devices) to every student, parent and teacher in Jackson. EHT presents this information and contest particulars in classrooms, school meetings and parent groups at every school in Jackson,Wyoming.
