What is Big Pitch?

The Big Pitch is one of Stamp Out Smoking’s youth and community activities. Designed to engage Arkansas students in tobacco prevention and cessation efforts and reduce the state’s youth smoking rates, the activity is open to public and private schools in all 75 counties. Participants in grades 7 – 12 may submit video entries that are judged and awarded prizes at the Big Pitch Film Festival. The Big Pitch seeks to educate youth about the dangerous health effects of tobacco and nicotine products; reveal the tobacco industry’s marketing tactics and efforts to target youth; and generate youth-driven tobacco prevention and cessation messaging.

CREATE A 27-SECOND COMMERCIAL OR 12- SECOND SOCIAL VIDEO ADDRESSING ONE OF THE FOLLOWING TOPICS:

  1. Speak out against Big Tobacco and all of its lies.
  2. Influence your peers with a positive message about living a smoke-free life.
  3. Smoking takes you away from your life. Show the moments you would miss if you chose to step outside, away from the fun, to smoke or vape.
  4. Youth smoking is NOT the norm, despite what Big Tobacco wants you to believe. Create a commercial that challenges Big Tobacco’s lies and shows how living tobacco- and nicotine-free is the way to be.
