Make A Dear Me NH Video - Contest Rules

Make a video of yourself reading your Dear Me letter with the reasons you want to quit tobacco and win a chance to be on TV!

Your Video

Please be honest in your video, include images of your life and things that have meaning and relate to your letter. Shoot your video in the style of the Dear Me commercials. Two people who create compelling videos will be chosen to have their stories professionally produced. (These existing videos can be viewed on our website here and YouTube channel.)

From the videos submitted, two people will be chosen to have their stories about quitting be professionally produced and may air on local NH TV, radio, web and print media and will inspire other people to write Dear Me letters too. All letters and video content submitted become the property of the NH Tobacco Helpline (the State of New Hampshire) and may stay in our records for ten years.
