Hong Kong Council on Smoking and Health (COSH) launched a prize presentation ceremony of Smoke-free Home and Smoke-free Teens Campaign 2011-12 on 25 February 2012 (TODAY) at Event Hall of Citywalk I for giving recognition to all the outstanding participants who have paid extra efforts to promote smoke-free lifestyle. “Smoke-free Home and Smoke-free Teens Campaign” has been launched from May 2011 to January 2012. In promoting the establishment of smoke-free family, students were encouraged to persuade their family members to quit smoking and over 13,000 students from age 3-15 have participated in this campaign and helped to bring home smoke-free messages to their loved ones. Nearly 80,000 public members signed support for supporting smoke-free home.

Honourable guests included Ms Lisa LAU, MH JP, Chairman of COSH, Mr. CHEN Wei On, Kenneth, JP, Under Secretary for Education, Education Bureau, Dr. TAM Lai Fan, Gloria, JP, Deputy Director of Health, Department of Health and Ms Brenda WU, Chairman of Education and Publicity Committee, COSH were officiated at the ceremony of the Premiere. Ms Lisa LAU stated that COSH has received plenty of creative proposals from students in this campaign for helping their family members quit smoking. We were all so excited when reading the feedback from their family members who shared their story of smoking cessation.

Besides 50 kindergarten children and 50 students from primary and junior secondary schools, 10 outstanding sharing from family members also attended the ceremony and received recognition on stage. It is incredible that one of the 10 outstanding family members was a grandfather who has smoked for over 60 years.
