NCI's Smokefree Women Launch New Video Contest to Capture the Quitting Experience
Wednesday, May 12, 2010
The National Cancer Institute’s Smokefree Women has launched a video contest—Celebrating Smokefree Voices—to capture the variety of quitting experiences and reasons for quitting smoking among women and friends/families across the nation.
Video submissions are now being accepted in two categories:
There will be three winners in each category with prizes up to $2,000. All video entries must be submitted by June 4, 2010 along with the required video entry form. Contest winners will be announced on July 2, 2010, right before Independence Day, to celebrate freedom (or "independence”) from smoking.
- Why I Am a Smokefree Woman: Create a video that tells others why you stay smokefree. What are your reasons and motivations? What does it mean to you to be a smokefree woman?
- Why I Want YOU to be Smokefree: Is there a woman in your life that you care about who smokes? Create a video and let them know why you want them to enjoy a smokefree life and the freedom from cigarettes.
