Seventh grade health students at the Campbell Savona Junior High School competed to create posters promoting healthy behaviors and decisions, and media literacy regarding tobacco. Steuben Council on Addictions and health teacher, Monique Curtis-Knapp, facilitated the contest with funds generously donated by the Campbell Savona Parent Teacher Student Organization. The grand prize winners were Krista W, Kayla B, and Olivia C and the runners up were Hannah M, Margaret B, and Natalie F. The three grand prize winners received twenty five dollar Wal-Mart gift cards and the three runners up received 10 dollar Wal-Mart gift cards. All participants also received anti-tobacco prizes. Congratulations to the winners and participants! The Great American Smoke Out is held every November on the third Thursday of the month. The American Cancer Society helped to create this awareness day to encourage smokers to quit for just that one day. That one smoke free day can give a smoker the confidence and tools to quit for life. The advertisements that the student made were great reminders of why smokers should quit and the negative impact of big tobacco marketing to teens.
