SLOGAN CONTEST

NSTEP sponsors a slogan contest with Little League International to educate players about the dangers of smokeless tobacco.

ENTER THE CONTEST


 

NSTEP:

Oral Health America’s National Spit Tobacco Education Program (NSTEP) was founded in 1994 as an effort to educate baseball families and the American public about the dangers of smokeless and spit tobacco. NSTEP works to break the long-standing link between this potentially deadly drug and America’s pastime. Each year, anywhere from 10 to 16 million Americans put their health at risk using spit tobacco products.

The National Spit Tobacco Education Program’s mission is to prevent people, especially young people, from starting to use spit tobacco, and to help all users quit.

The 2013 winner of the NSTEP slogan contest is Glen Huggins (pictured on the left) from Chula Vista, Ca., who developed the phrase: “Be a home run hitter, not a ballpark spitter!” Glen won a trip to Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa., along with a cash prize and donation to his Little League organization. Congratulations Glen!
