“Be Smart–Don’t Start” Anti-Tobacco Contest

Reading Time: < 1 minute 

The annual, statewide “Be Smart–Don’t Start” Anti-Tobacco curriculum educates students in grades K–5 on the dangers of tobacco through fun, interactive classroom lessons. The DVD curriculum is free and customized for grades K–2 and 3–5.

Held in conjunction with this year’s new curriculum, the 2013 Be Smart–Don’t Start Contest will run from January 14–February 18. Classrooms can create video, audio or visual multimedia entries designed to educate other students and adults of the dangers of tobacco. The entries will be judged by age and category, and three first, second and third place winners will be selected in each grade group (K–2 and 3–5). One overall grand-prize winner will have their entry turned into a 30-second public service announcement featuring the classes’ own creativity and voices.

In addition, the grand prize and first place winners will be honored during a ceremony at the State Capitol, receive an iPad for their classroom and enjoy a field trip to Science Museum Oklahoma. Second and third place winners will receive cash prizes. Contest entries must be uploaded on the Be Smart–Don’t Start website by 5:00pm on February 18.
