Congratulations to our 2022 Summer Don’t Buy the Lie Contest Winners!

The Health Education Council, with support from Kaiser Permanente, hosted the Summer 2022  'Don't Buy the Lie' contest - an opportunity for youth to use artistic expression to unmask tobacco and vaping industries and show the addictive harm they do to youth.  

Youth in Grades 6-12 from Yolo, Placer, and Sacramento County were invited to use their innovative minds to create unique contest entries for a chance to win up to $1,000 in prizes. 

Without further ado, here are our winners!
