Welcome to Review & Rate 2023-24


REVIEW & Rate is an educational program aimed at Manitoba students in grades 5 through 12 that allows them to think about nicotine, tobacco use, and vaping from a number of perspectives with the goal being to help students stay nicotine-free or quit.

Ads are valid for access from November 1, 2023 February 29,2024

Students view six anti-tobacco and six anti-vaping TV ads and vote for the ad they find to be most effective. Votes are submitted to the department and the winning anti-tobacco and the anti-vaping ad, along with our classroom prize winners will be shared and posted online in the spring of 2024.
