Smokers nationwide were challenged to put down their cigarettes Thursday for the Great American Smokeout. The annual American Cancer Society initiative takes place the third Thursday of every November, encouraging smokers to quit for at least a day with the ultimate goal of quitting for good. 

Every year, the Bennett Cancer Center partners with the American Cancer Society and the City to hold a "smoking stinks" poster contest with Stamford's elementary school students. An awards ceremony took place at the City's Government Center Thursday, where dozens of posters, all with the same message, were on display.
