Students Tweet Encouragement to Help Loved Ones Quit Smoking

A recent statewide competition known as the "Tweets for your Sweet" campaign found its top prizes awarded to three UNCW students! Held by the N.C. Tobacco-Free College Initiative, the competition asked students to submit simple and creative messages via Twitter that they would send to loved ones to help them quit smoking.  UNCW held the highest student response rate of all colleges and universities that participated, helping to make an impact in promoting the cessation of smoking among college students.
