In this cluster randomized controlled trial, we test the effectiveness of two non-monetary incentive programs to prevent tobacco use among middle-school children in Indonesia. The study results will indicate whether a social penalty can motivate students to refrain from smoking; identify the magnitude of peer influence on students’ smoking behavior; and inform anti-tobacco policy in a high-prevalence setting.
