The Story

The largest killer of people doesn’t even equal every American war combined, that title belongs to smoking. You could say that someone fighting an addiction with tobacco was almost fighting a little war of their own.

We here at want to challenge current and future college students to share their ideas on how to make the world smoke-free.

Our goal with the contest is to offer some awareness with the hazards of smoking and smoking addictions. Therefore, our biggest goal is to motivate people who are struggling with any form of smoking abuse to reach out for help. [/box][/section]

    I found a bulletin board on campus that said the deadline is January 21st, 2018. Is that false information?
