VTV.vn - An online contest on the theme of "For a tobacco-free life for Vietnamese children" has been launched on Facebook in response to World No-Tobacco Day (May 31) and National No-Tobacco Week (lasting from May 25 to 31).

The event is hosted by the Vietnam Non-communicable Diseases Prevention and Control Alliance (NCDs-VN) in coordination with the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids (CTFK) and Y hoc Cong dong (Community-based Medicine Organisation) in order to create a movement to build scientific, quality and effective communication products, thereby spreading the warning message about the serious harms of tobacco and new generation tobacco, as well as promoting the community's voice to protect young people from these harmful tobacco products.

Accordingly, the contest is seeking stories from individuals, families and communities to spread the message about preventing the harmful effects of tobacco, especially new types of tobacco, and promoting community initiatives to protect children and young people from such harmful risks.

Entries must be posted on personal Facebook pages in public mode with hashtags #WorldNoTobaccoDay and #NCDVN, with the post links sent to the Organising Committee via email address van.nguyen@rtccd.org.vn .

The contest is launched online from May 25 to June 10, with winners to be announced on June 17.

12 prizes will be awarded, with a total value of VND24 million, including one first prize worth VND5 million, two second prizes worth VND3 million each and three third prizes worth VND2 million VND each.
