Smoking is NOT for Me!
Essay/Poem/Art Contest for Missouri Middle School Students

The Missouri State Medical Association Alliance is “Advocating for a Healthy Difference in Missouri Communities”.

We are sponsor a “Smoking is Not For Me” Essay/Poem/Art contest for Missouri Middle School students to encourage the youth of Missouri to choose not to smoke and avoid its many health issues. Use the following forms to enter your students in this worthwhile contest.


In addition, Greene County Medical Alliance (Springfield, MO) has produced an award-winning animated DVD entitled “Smoking Makes Me Ugly” which makes an excellent companion teaching tool to assist you. DVD information may be found at on Greene County's website.

From past years’ contests, we have found the students seem to benefit most from viewing the DVD and then writing their essays. I would like to encourage your students to use their imagination when participating in this worthwhile statewide contest.

Please note that the Missouri State Medical Association Alliance becomes full proprietor of all entries. The MSMAA may reproduce any or all entries in its publications and electronically.
