What's In It
This year's Event-in-a-Box will focus on "Big Tobacco's Manipulation Lab." The activity concerns the latest products Big Tobacco is using to entice kids, including new types of cigars and smokeless tobacco.
The kit will include stencils, chalk, instructions, and stickers for the "Big Tobacco's Manipulation Lab" activity. (Note: These items will not be helpful unless you are doing this activity. Please do not request an Event-in-a-Box if you plan to do a different activity.)
Why "Big Tobacco's Manipulation Lab?'
Many tobacco products are shaped, packaged and flavored just like candy, but they're still addictive and harmful. The goal of this activity is to educate youth about Big Tobacco's manipulative ways, and how these companies continue to target new products to youth through colorful packaging and cheap prices.
Who is the activity suitable for?
Events in a box are suitable for middle school- and high school-aged youth. The kits contain enough materials for 30 participants and must be used in conjunction with a Kick Butts Day event.
You can only order one Event-in-a-Box for your group. If you are coordinating events for multiple groups, please have each event coordinator order one for their event site. If you have any questions about whether an Event-in-a-Box is right for your group, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
