The Up Center presents the:
“Don’t Get Burned!” Art Contest
The Up Center’s Strengthening Families program is holding an art contest in 3 local Portsmouth Public Schools to educate youth and their families on the dangers of tobacco products.
Each day in the United States, more than 3,800 youth aged 18 years or younger smoke their first cigarette, and an additional 2,100 youth and young adults become daily cigarette smokers.
The Up Center’s goal is to increase awareness and education so that youth and their families make better decisions when it comes to tobacco use. Winners will be announced Wednesday, March 16th, which is National Kick Butts Day.
