On January 1, the Minnesota Department of Health, in partnership with MNAAP and other non-profit organizations across the state, launched the Escape the Vape Video Challenge – a contest to engage Minnesota students and raise awareness of the dangers for using vapes, also called e-cigarettes.
Contestants are asked to submit a 30-second PSA video to educate their peers, schools, families, and community on the dangers of vaping nicotine. This opportunity allows students to use their creative energy to make a difference in their community. There are cash prizes for the top five entries; first place is a $500 cash prize for both the student and their school or organization.
See the attached Escape the Vape Video Challenge flyer (PDF), which can be shared with students in your community.
The Escape the Vape Video Challenge is made possible by the Minnesota Department of Health in partnership with Masonic Cancer Center at the University of Minnesota, Tobacco-Free Alliance, CCF Advertising, MNAAP (Minnesota Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics), MN Youth Council, and Allina Health’s Change to Chill.
