Hollywood star Katherine Heigl is one of the many negative influences and forces in pop culture that send young people the wrong message about the deadly habit of smoking.

From glamorous stars like Katherine Heigl and Penelope Cruz to the beautiful fashion models in magazine spreads, young teens are bombarded with visuals that glamorize smoking and make it look pretty and fashionable.

Well, the young students at High Schools in Ohio have something to say about this. In fact, they want to Kick Some Butts at the 8th Annual High School Anti-Tobacco Commercial Contest.

Check out the winning video "Smoking Fairy", from Clyde High School (Ohio) above, and a selection of the finalists below. I sure hope Katherine Heigl watches them.
