The Smoking Stinks program of the Anne Arundel County Department of Health has announced the winners of its Tobacco-Free Kids Week T-shirt design contest. The nineteenth annual Tobacco-Free Kids Week, held February 9-15, 2014, enlisted schools and other youth-centered groups to reach kids with anti-tobacco activities that included the T-shirt design contest, anti-tobacco pledges, displays, trivia contests and murals. This year’s event saw 152 County groups hold anti-tobacco activities for almost 70,000 youths.

For the first time, Smoking Stinks sought community input for the winning T-shirt designs through online voting.  There were 63 entries in the contest. More than 6,900 votes were cast as people voted for their favorite anti-tobacco T-shirt design in three categories: elementary, middle and high school age groups.

The countywide winners in each category will get their designs printed on custom T-shirts for themselves and their sponsoring groups. Each countywide winner will also receive an iPod. All entrants receive Smoking Stinks drawstring bags and a certificate. Designs are posted on the Showcase page of the Smoking Stinks website, www.SmokingStinks.org.

The winners of the anti-tobacco T-shirt design contest are:

  • Elementary Age: Cole Languell from Shipley’s Choice Elementary School (left)
  • Middle School Age: Ashley Gasca from George Fox Middle School (center)
  • High School Age: Kayla Vlcej from Northeast High School (right)
