CATCH My Breath in Mississippi Anti-Vaping PSA Submissions

Mississippi Students: We Need Your Help!

We want to empower you to share your voice and choice to not vape or use e-cigarettes by creating an anti-vaping public service announcement (PSA). As the first-and-only evidence-based vaping prevention program for youth in grades 5-12, CATCH My Breath wants to lift up students' choices and creativity. We’re asking students in Mississippi to help us design a vaping prevention poster or short video that can be used to support the CATCH My Breath program in your state.

Submissions will be judged by an independent panel on creativity, content, production, and quality.

Submissions should fit the eligibility and specification requirements given below and are due on Friday, May 21st by 5 p.m. CDT.

Winners will be announced no later than June 30, 2021 via social media. Winning entries will be used by CATCH Global Foundation in partnership with Mississippi State Department of Health, Mississippi Department of Education, and other Mississippi partners on websites, social media platforms, and print materials. Artist credit will be given to the content creator(s).
