Annual Panhellenic School Student Conferences
Annual Panhellenic School Student Conferences “Education for a SMOKEFREE GENERATION”
Since 2010, Annual Panhellenic School Student Conferences entitled, “Education for a SMOKEFREE GENERATION” have taken place which have included an Annual Panhellenic School Student Competition since 2013. The competition, with a varying theme for tobacco prevention every year, encourages students to express through artistic means such as drawing, painting, musical composition, video clips and animation on the selected topic of that year. These artistic works are presented and displayed at the student conference. Prizes are awarded to students during a special ceremony.
More than 7.000 students have participated in educational activities, theatrical and musical events.
More than 4.000 school-aged students have participated in the competitions.
The competition theme of the 7th Annual Panhellenic School Student Conference in 2016 was “Smoking and its effects on the Environment”. The students were asked to write a letter to a recipient of their choice, real or imaginary, referring to how smoking affects the environment.
