people the dangers and negative effects smoking can have on you.Be
convincing--this could be a matter oflife or death. The Task: For this
project you will be assigned a specific age group in order to create a
public service announcement. Your ad must appeal to this specific age
group in order to educate them about the dangers of smoking. Your ad
must give them facts on why they shouldn't smoke and information on how
to quit. Keep in mind the differences between each group, (interests,
pop culture, the way it will affect their bodies based on their age).

every person a different question to find the answer to)

• Once you can answer all of these questions it is time for your
group to make your public service announcement (PSA) for D.A.R.E

make a PSA that targets your specific age group and that includes the
