The Healthy Youth survey includes questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance use, risk and protective factors, and access to school-based services. Survey results are used by schools, communities and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks.


The Healthy Youth Survey is given to students in grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 across Washington State.  We will only be giving this survey to current 8th graders.


Participation in the survey is voluntary and the students’ answers are anonymous.
