2024 KNOW VAPE Video Contest Winners

Grand prize winners from Kuna and Boise win $2,000 each


While Idaho is in the grips of a youth vaping epidemic, the prize patrol from Idaho Public Television’s KNOW VAPE campaign visited classrooms in Kuna and Boise to hand out grand prizes and big checks to two teens trying to help solve the problem. 

Troy Edwards from Kuna Middle School and Maximilian Carter from Boise Senior High took the top honors for their anti-vape videos entered in the 2024 KNOW VAPE teen video contest. Each will take home $2,000. 

This is the second year of the KNOW VAPE teen video contest, which asks Idaho teens to produce a 90-second video that speaks to the dangers of vaping and tips on prevention or how to quit vaping.  

Be Smart. Don't Start.

The KNOW VAPE 'Be Smart. Don't Start' campaign is designed to prevent kids from vaping by exposing the toxic chemicals found in vapes, the nefarious ways in which Big Tobacco preys upon kids, and separating myths from the facts about vaping. Find and share the campaign on Instagram and Facebook
