The scholarship essay contest is open to undergraduate and graduate students who are 18 years old or older

Smoking is bad, we've all heard about the studies and we know it shortens your life. But still, there are people who are hooked on their cigarettes. So QuitDay.org has created an essay contest for students to write about smoking issues.


Applicants must submit a typed essay (1,000–1,500 words) answering the following questions:

  • Why do you see smoking as a problem for individuals and society?
  • What is the best way for society to overcome the issue of smoking, and why?
  • What would a smoke-free world look like, and how would it differ from the world today?
  • What message do you have for current smokers?

The essay must include the word count and be signed with a full name (both first and last name), along with the applicant’s email address, phone number and permanent address.

The winning applicants will be determined based on the essay content, style and originality. Judges are looking for logically organized and well-supported essays.
