X-HALE Youth Awards is a project of the Irish Cancer Society which aims to prevent young people from starting to smoke.
For our 2013 campaign we have launched the X-HALE Short Film Competition. Youth groups are encouraged to make a film to help prevent young people from starting to smoke and enter our competition. As part of our awards process 31 youth groups from across Ireland have been awarded a grant to help fund their film project. These 31 groups are also taking part in 6 regional film making workshops to assist their projects.
On Thursday 4th April, four youth groups will attend the X-HALE Youth Awards Film Workshop :Ennis Garda Youth Diversion Project, Tipperary Regional Youth Service, Fishbowl Youth Service, Tumagraney Co Clare, Springboard KDYS, Tralee
