Young people in Coventry are being offered the chance to win a year's supply of condoms in a bid to encourage safe sex.
They will be entered into a draw to win up to 288 condoms in return for requesting a chlamydia screening kit from the GOT IT? website.
The competition, run by Coventry's NHS Contraception and Sexual Health Service, is open to 15-24-year-olds.
Mary Martin, co-ordinator of GOT IT?, the city's chlamydia screening programme, said: "The best way to prevent yourself from coming into contact with the infection is through consistent and proper use of condoms.
"We are certainly not saying to people 'go and have sex', but if you are sexually active and not using a condom, then you are at risk and you need to be checked out.
"We target our screenings at over 16s but know that there are under 16s out there having unprotected sex and putting themselves at risk.
"There are lots of places around the city where free condoms are available to young people so what is the difference with being able to go to a free service and picking them up or getting them through a competition?"
