The Story

Smoking has killed more people than every American war combined, and more than 10 times over. Many victims of tobacco addiction feel as though they are fighting a war themselves.
With the Scholarship, we want to challenge current and prospective college students to share their story on how we can make the world smoke-free.

The goal of this contest is to raise awareness of the dangers of smoking abuse and addictions and help motivate people struggling with the smoking abuse issues to reach our for help.
