The Utah Department of Health's "The Truth" campaign is honoring three student groups for their winning entries in the Real Noise competition.
The competition invites junior-, middle- and high-school students and their friends to conduct an anti-tobacco activity.
Eisenhower Junior High School in Taylorsville earned first place and was to be honored with a free concert by the band Neon Trees, as well as $1,000 in prize money.
The Eisenhower students' winning entry consisted of a game they created for the entire school. Student leaders posted anti-tobacco facts on red cards on the walls. Students were invited to take a fact from the wall and read it during lunch, then they slapped the facts over a picture of a cigarette, creating a no-smoking sign for all to see.
Runners up were CBA Center, Central Utah Public Health Department, Delta, which painted a mural on top of a graffiti wall; and Teen Advocacy, Southeastern Utah District Health Department, which created a smoke-free homes and cars pledge wall outside City Market.
