About Wisconsin Wins

The Wisconsin Wins (WI Wins) campaign is a science-based, state-level initiative designed to decrease youth access to tobacco products. WI Wins was launched in the spring of 2002 as part of a comprehensive approach to preventing youth access to tobacco.

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services contracts with local partners to conduct investigations to establish retailer compliance with the law. Local initiatives also include retailer education and training, media outreach, and community education.

WI Wins uses positive reinforcement to reduce illegal tobacco sales to minors. It congratulates local clerks who do not sell tobacco to youth, while educating those who would. This approach creates community pride by reducing youth access to tobacco products and providing youth a chance to make a difference in their community.

Free Retailer Training

Smokecheck.org provides free state-approved retailer training on Wisconsin tobacco sales law. The online tool includes study guides, a quiz, and a certificate of completion. Once trained, employees will know how not to sell tobacco to minors. Smokecheck.org can help retailers avoid license suspension and fines. Even better, by knowing and following the rules, they help Wisconsin youth stay tobacco-free.
