Taiwan John Tung Foundation is hosting a country-wide smoking cessation contest for smokers who want to quit smoking and possibly win a super lottery of NT 600,000 and more (www.quitandwin.org.tw). Quit&Win is an international smoking cessation contest for adults. Smokers from all over the world will try to quit smoking or using tobacco products for at least a four-week period in May 2006. After the contest period the winners are drawn among the participants. Potential winners undergo tests to verify their abstinence.
- The participants have to be at least 18 years of age and current daily smokers for a year. Users of smokeless tobacco are also eligible.
- You either are citizens of Taiwan OR have been living in Taiwan for no less than a year.
- To register for the Q and W contest, a smoker needs to couple with a non-smoking witness (can be a relative, friend, colleauge…etc) who will verify the abstinence of the participating smoker, as a participating unit for the contest. The prize will be awarded as a team for both smoker and witness.
The competition period is four weeks starting from May 2th to May 29th.
The participants must send the entry form to local organizer no later than April 30, 2006.
Participants who have completely abstained from smoking and tobacco for at least four weeks after the quit date are eligible for the prizes. The draw will take place among the participants. The winner candidates will be contacted immediately after the contest period. The abstinence is verified by a witness and a biochemical test. The Taiwan Super Prize, is NT 600,000, another six 60,000 NT prizes will also award to successful participants who have quitted smoking during the whole month. The international super prize, USD 10.000 and six regional prizes of USD 2.500 will be drawn among the main prize winners of each country. The probability to win is proportional to the number if participants in each country. Participants are also required to cooperate with the one year later follow-up survey to assess the abstinence rates by the Quit&Win country organizers.
