The Breathe Youth Media Awards, formerly known as “The Hackademy Awards” or “the Hacks” is a unique youth choice awards that aims to keep teens’ lungs healthy with smokefree movies and to create young public health advocates. The event features an anti-tobacco video contest by local teens and an awards ceremony where our Thumbs Up! Thumbs Down! student movie reviewers call out actors, actresses and movie studios based on their portrayals of tobacco onscreen. Following the awards ceremony, attendees are invited to join us for an all-inclusive after-party with free food, games, dancing, music, and prizes.
