Tar Wars is a tobacco-free education program four fourth- and fifth-grade 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. A follow-up poster and video contest may be conducted at the school, state, and national level to reinforce the Tar Wars message.
