Escape the Vape Video Challenge Returns for 2023

 

January 10, 2023

Middle and high school students across the state of Minnesota are being invited to participate in a contest to help educate their peers on the dangers of vaping with the chance to win up to $500 for students and $500 for their associated school or organization. To participate, students will submit a 30-second public service announcement (PSA) video to educate their peers, schools, families, and community on the dangers of using e-cigarettes. Video submissions will be collected during the month of February, finalists notified in March and winners announced on April 7, 2023.

Escape the Vape is a collaboration between a broad group of Minnesota organizations who are working to reduce youth e-cigarette use. The objective of this video contest is to engage youth to use their voices and inform their peers about the dangers of vaping. Last year, students in middle and high school submitted 160 PSA videos. This year, there is more swag and more cash prizes for students and schools who participate.
