What is Ready Set Record?

On behalf of the Arkansas Department of Health’s Tobacco Prevention and Cessation Program and Arkansas Children’s Hospital, the Project Prevent Youth Coalition (PPYC) is excited to announce Ready. Set. Record. Entries for the event will be accepted September 10, 2018, through January 4, 2019.
For 15 years, students have used video, acting and editing skills to demonstrate their ability to effectively and creatively advocate for a life-saving tobacco prevention policy, and you can make a difference too!

This year's theme is: Youth Led. Fact Fed.

Students wishing to participate in Ready. Set. Record. can do so by creating a 30-second video. The video must be about being tobacco free. It can be about living tobacco free and encouraging others to do so or can advocate for a tobacco-free related community policy like making Arkansas’s Clean Indoor Air Act comprehensive.

My Reason to Write

The My Reason to Write project is one of Stamp Out Smoking’s youth and community activities. Designed to engage Arkansas students in tobacco prevention and cessation efforts and reduce the state’s youth smoking rates, the activity is open to public and private schools in all 75 counties. Participants in grades 2 – 8 may submit their entries through mail, email or through the website. Entries are judged in respective categories and are awarded prizes. The ultimate goal is to educate youth about the dangerous health effects of tobacco and nicotine products; reveal the tobacco industry’s marketing tactics and efforts to target youth; and inspire other students with youth-driven tobacco prevention and cessation messaging.
