Tar Wars

Tar Wars is a tobacco education presentation available to all fifth grade students.  The program focuses on the social aspects of why children begin to use tobacco, and kids gain a new perspective on the role advertising plays in influencing that choice. Healthy Androscoggin and its trained team of volunteers have joined together to change cultural norms around acceptance of tobacco use and to advise our youth not to start.  If you are interested in having a trained professional bring Tar Wars to your school, contact Healthy Androscoggin at 795-5990.
