The Annual School Competition for Tobacco Prevention named in honor of Dr. Marcus of blessed memory, held in conjunction with the ICA, Shefi - Psychological and Counseling Services of the Ministry of Education and the League for the Prevention of Lung Diseases:
This year also saw the Annual Competition between Schools, at the end of May, which presented various projects on smoking prevention, marking World No Tobacco Day.
The competition opening was followed by a lecture delivered by Prof. Avraham Eliraz, Chairman of the League for the Prevention of Lung Diseases, on "Smoking and Health".
20 schools from across the country submitted their candidacy to the judging committee and 7 schools reached the finals and received awards.
As part of this competition, the students prepared diverse projects, highlighting smoking prevention and heightened awareness of smoking's harmful effects, and during the ceremony, their projects were displayed through presentations, clips, posters and more. All the participants received a certificate of appreciation for their activity.
The competition began in 1999, an idea conceived by the late Dr. Marcus, who served as the Chairman of the League for the Prevention of Lung Diseases and Tuberculosis, and ever since his demise, eight years ago, the competition is named in his honor.
