In Indiana, the use of e-cigarettes and vaping among youth has risen more than 350 percent among high school and middle school students since 2012, according to the ISDH. Furthermore, Indiana teens are more likely to use vaping devices than cigarettes. The increase in vaping among youth is rising at such an alarming rate that the U.S. Surgeon General is calling it an epidemic that “demands action to protect the lives of young people.
In attempts to bring awareness to and fight this epidemic, IYSA has come up with a social media contest among youth to create the best meme focusing on escaping the vape!
Create an anti-vaping ad and use the hashtag #Escapethevape, the ad with the most likes wins.
