Medical students, teachers and other healthcare providers visit classes to present the 45-minute interactive curriculum that focuses on the short-term, image-based consequences of tobacco use and how to think critically about tobacco advertising. At the conclusion of the presentation, students are encouraged to create posters that reaffirm the positive Tar Wars® message. One poster from each classroom is sent to the NAFP Foundation, where the NAFP members vote to select a statewide winner. That winning poster is submitted into the Tar Wars National Poster Contest. The ultimate goal is to discourage tobacco use among the nation's youth through an interactive format, community involvement and education. For more information, visit the Tar Wars® section on the AAFP website.
