• November 16, 2017 was the Great American Smokeout! The SC Tobacco Free Collaborative, Hampton County’s Eat Smart Move More and HYPE sponsored a Smokeout on the grill instead of Smokeout with tobacco products in the Piggly Wiggly parking lot! Students from USC Salkehatchie volunteered to help challenge people to stop tobacco use for at least one day.

Calling all Hampton County Youth! Please join Hampton County’s Eat Smart Move More (ESMM), Healthy Young People Empowerment (HYPE), and the SC Tobacco Free Collaborative (SCTFC) for the “Great American SmokeOut” day on November 16, 2017! 


Statistics show that tobacco products are a part of many youth’s daily interaction, either personally or with friends or family. Take advantage of our scholarship opportunity. (See details below)


Develop a video that will be judged based on the following:


1. 1 minute video including:

a. A way or ways that you’ve encountered tobacco usage

b. How you’ve either avoided usage or tried to encourage a friend or family member to quit using tobacco products

c. Indicate how you, your friend or family member challenged his/her/yourself to quit using tobacco products

2. Be creative (appropriate music, filters, etc.) and/or the inclusion of the person participating in the challenge to quit tobacco usage.
