During the Drug Awareness Week, the Youth Coalition Against Smoking invites high schools and youth centres to meet the “sticky-note challenge.” The goal is to help teens realize that smoking is an addiction and express the advantages they associate with a tobacco-free life.

How to take part
During Drug Awareness Week, invite teens from your community to create an immense mosaic using sticky notes. Hurry Up! Register your school or youth center before SEPTEMBER 20th 2013.


1. Order the Youth Coalition Against Smoking poster and the sticky notes available free of charge at http://www.ycas.info/challenge. Quantities are limited!

2. Ask each teen to complete the following statement on a sticky note: “By not smoking, I _____________.”

3. Create your mosaic by placing the sticky notes beneath the Youth Coalition Against Smoking poster. And don’t be afraid to be original!

4. Take a photograph of your mosaic and share your masterpiece at http://facebook.com/lagangallumee before November 26, 2013.
