The competition highlights the importance of lung health for a full and active life. Awards are open to teenagers aged between 12 and 18 years.

Lung disease accounts for almost half of all chronic illness in nine-year-olds and is the most common health condition in young adults aged 18 to 24 years.

Smoking is a leading cause of lung disease and research shows that almost 80 per cent of smokers start the habit before the age of 18 years. The challenge is to bring home to young people, in a way that they can relate to, why minding their lung health is important and how to go about it.

The top prize in Lovin Our Lungs is an adventure experience for the winning club, class or individual and their friends with Ecoadventure Ireland—a chance to experience fresh air, stunning scenery and a range of thrilling adventure activities at a choice of centres nationwide.

The competition is based on a number of themes—how our lungs work, looking after our lungs, and fun lung facts. Entrants are invited to make a 90-second movie celebrating the importance of our lungs and how to look after them based on one or more of these themes. The campaign is supported by RTÉ’s Two Tube which will showcase the winning entry live on air on Friday May 27.

The closing date for entries is Sunday May 22, 2016.
