Welcome to Critics' Choice 2020

Critics’ Choice is an initiative coordinated annually by Quit as part of a strategy to reduce the prevalence of smoking and e-cigarette use among young people.

The objective of Critics’ Choice is for students in years 5 to 10 to view the selection of advertisements in the showreel and think about the different issues surrounding tobacco and e-cigarette use.

WATCH

Students are invited to watch the showreel of anti-smoking and anti-vaping advertisements from around the world. The advertisements vary in their style, approach and target audience. ‚ÄčIt is recommended that teachers view the advertisements prior to use with students, to determine the suitability. It is also recommended that teachers familiarise themselves with school procedures for managing students who may become upset during the lesson.

LEARN

Teachers are encouraged to use the information on the Smoking in Australia page of this website as well as the Activities and Teacher Resources to create classroom discussion around the advertisements. The activities are designed to get students thinking, talking and role-playing about the different issues surrounding tobacco and e-cigarette use. A factsheet and list of helpful resources are available along with the activities to assist students and teachers in completing them.

Please note it is at the teacher’s discretion as to which activities are suitable for their students.

VOTE

After completing the classroom activities, students are encouraged to vote for a winning advertisement in each category:

Best at Deterring tobacco smoking among young people

Best at Deterring e-cigarette use among young people

Teachers should collate student votes and select the winning advertisement for each category, on behalf of their class, via the online form at criticschoice.quit.org.au. Schools in participating states* go into the draw to WIN a sporting goods voucher for their school.

Voting will be open from 5 October to 7 December 2020.
