Get Reel is a contest where students in grades 6 – 12 in all 3 northern territories make their own short anti tobacco ads. It is a new addition to this year’s Smoke Screening program. To see ads from all three territories, please visit and here for NWT Get Reel winners.
Also, the Smoke Screening Program gives students a chance to view 12 of the best tobacco education ads from around the world, and then select the one they feel is the most effective to prevent youth from starting to use tobacco in the first place or convince them to quit if they are already using it. Students vote on ballot forms that are counted across all 3 territories. The winning ad this year is EmphysemaClick here for more info.
