The Anti-Tobacco Public Service Announcement Contest is co-sponsored by WSTU/WPSL-AM Radio, the Quit Doc Research and Education Foundation, and the Tobacco Free Partnership of Martin County. The contest gives local youth the opportunity to create their own 30-second video PSAs highlighting youth tobacco issues. This year, the contest was expanded to include entries from Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River, and Okeechobee Counties.

The contest was held in conjunction with a Radio PSA Contest. The winners of the Radio PSA Contest were announced on April 2, during a live broadcast of the Coachers Corner. You can listen to all of the finalists, and view a video of the Coaches Corner show here.
