Summer is a great time for young people.  The days are long and bright, there is no school and possibilities for fun seem endless.  However, for many young people the opportunities to enjoy summer activities are limited. This is a time when young people can lose contact with their peers and become disengaged from support systems such as school and communities.

As part of the X-HALE Youth Awards (brought about by the Irish Cancer Society) the X-HALE Film competition has been launched. A number of Foróige projects and clubs have contributed 2 minute films on the issue of smoking. Peer pressure, health effects and other topics are addressed by the young people.
