Gacovino Lake is awarding one student $2,500 who creates the most creative and convincing PSA on why teens, children, and peers should quit vaping or not begin in the first place.

- Warnings and risks of vaping and the use of the Juul
- Convincing content on why one should quit vaping
- Targeted towards your peers and youth
Since the start of JUUL, there have been massive spikes in youth vaping. According to a study, 27.5% of high school students and 10.5% of eighth-graders say they currently use e-cigarettes, with more than half of both groups using Juul as their e-cigarette of choice. There have also been numerous lawsuits against JUUL for the company allegedly targeting children and teens in their ads and social media marketing. JUUL is known for their sleek minuscule designs and sweet trendy flavors. Because of this, they have grown very popular in the teen community and are easily concealed from parents and other authorities. Because of this, children and young adults are cultivating a nicotine addiction before their bodies and brains are fully developed.
Additionally, this subject is sensitive to the law offices of Gacovino Lake. One of the founders experienced the negative impact JUUL had on a member of their family. A member of their family experienced teenage nicotine addiction and struggles with this addiction every day. The teen is now an advocate for the fight against JUUL and other e-cigarette brands. He speaks on how it can easily lure teenagers and young adults into a nicotine addiction. Click and watch the video on the story shared about his personal experience with JUUL.
