Tar Wars winners announced

If you could stop one child from smoking, would you do it? How about thousands of children?

Family physicians have enthusiastically embraced Tar Wars program for more than 20 years, and the tobacco prevention program continues to be rated highly by AAFP members in terms of awareness and value. Tar Wars is a tobacco-free education program for elementary students. The program is designed to teach kids about the short-term, image-based consequences of tobacco use, the cost associated with using tobacco products, and the advertising techniques used by the tobacco industry to market their products to youth. Students from Ms. Stephanie Ward’s fifth grade class and Mr. Jason Pavey’s fifth grade class at Arlington Elementary School participated in a poster contest (urging people not to use tobacco).

Contest winners were:

Fifth grade – Ms. Ward

1. Brayden Spiker (grand prize winner overall)

2. Ben Grote

3.Morgan McGee

Fifth grade – Mr. Pavey

1. Nick Culley

2. Sam Sterrett

3. Carly Buckley
