In an effort to raise awareness about the dangers of smoking, the Tobacco-Less Club is having a Fresh Air Art Content to create anti-tobacco art AND communicate a no-smoking policy to the public! The winning entries will be made into posters and hung up at a Peralta campus. The top winner will receive $100.
Entries must be a visual art piece (drawing, photography, ceramics, multi-media, etc.) and have anti-tobacco messages to publicize that students can be fined more than $40.00 for smoking or vaping e-cigarettes at the Peralta campuses this year. It should also include an anti-tobacco message such as how the tobacco industry targets youth, the health hazards of secondhand smoke or E-cigarette vapor, or how the industry targets people of color to smoke menthols.
