The ASH Year 10 Snapshot is an annual cross-sectional census of New Zealand 14 and 15 year old school students smoking prevalence.
Otago Boys' High School's contribution to the ASH Year 10 Snapshot helps inform policy initiatives, health promotion, legislative changes and education activities to reduce tobacco use by young people. In recent years, this survey has informed evidence based policies that include banning tobacco retail displays, standardised (plain) packs, and increasing tobacco tax.
Otago Boys' High school has participated in the annual survey since its inception in 1999.
