Hastings Prince Edward Public Health Hosts Smoking Cessation Contest
Hastings Prince Edward Public Health is hosting a smoking and e-cigarette cessation contest for students in Canada.

According to a report by Canadian media outlet Quintenews on January 16, Hastings Prince Edward Public Health is organizing a competition aimed at encouraging students to quit smoking or using e-cigarettes in the month of February. The competition, hosted by Hastings Prince Edward Public Health, is open for students in grades 7 to 12, and is divided into two categories.


The first category is "Quit Smoking and Win Rewards," where participants are required to quit smoking or stop using e-liquid by February 1st or earlier and maintain this status until the competition ends on February 29th.


The Ministry of Health stated that they understand quitting smoking is a challenging task, and therefore they encourage participants to attempt to quit smoking for the entire month. Even if participants make the occasional mistake, they are encouraged to try again as there is still a chance to win rewards. Ten grand prize winners will receive Apple Airpods, while up to 40 runners-up will receive gift cards worth $25 for Tim Horton's, Starbucks, Apple Store, or Google Play.


Another category is known as "Win Rewards without Trying." In this category, contestants are prohibited from using tobacco or e-liquid in the month leading up to the competition.


At the end of the competition, which will be on February 29th, they will be required to remain smoke-free/e-liquid-free. Similar to the previous category, the top ten winners will receive a $100 Amazon gift card, while a maximum of 40 runners-up will win a $25 gift card to Tim Horton's, Starbucks, Apple Store, or Google Play. This competition is open to students from Hastings and Edward counties.
