Local Students Create Anti-Smoking Artwork for the Great American Smokeout
Pittsgrove Township Middle School students in sixth, seventh, and eighth grades recently created "Tobocco Free for a Healthy Me" posters as in preparation for American Cancer Society's Great American Smokeout on November 20. The anti-smoking posters are aimed at making public areas such as parks, sports fields, and playgrounds tobacco free. They can be seen in the lobby at the Inspira Medical Center in Elmer from November 17 until the 21. Visitors can vote on their favorite posters. One winner from each grade will be chosen. Great American Smokeout takes place on the third Thursday of November each year with a goal to encourage smokers to use the date to make a plan to quit smoking.
