Quit Now Indiana Contest

Do you know someone who wants to quit smoking? Now is the time to encourage them to take the next step towards becoming a former smoker. Indiana Tobacco Prevention and Cessation agency and INShape Indiana are sponsoring the 'Quit Now Indiana Contest.'

First introduced in 2007, the “Quit Now Indiana” contest is designed to encourage any Hoosier resident 18 years or older and who is a regular smoker to quit using tobacco from Sept. 1st to Sept. 30th. The top prize winner, who successfully quits smoking from September 1st to September 30th, 2010, and whose name is randomly drawn, will receive $2,500 as the grand prize winner. The second and third place winners will receive $1,500 and $1,000, respectively.

In addition to signing up online at and, tobacco users can sign up at the Indiana State Fair and the 1-800-QUIT-NOW Concert Series at the Lawn at White River State Park in Indianapolis. The entry deadline is August 23rd.

The odds of winning this contest are much better than the lottery, plus you win the benefit of good health by quitting.
