Hey there! Wanted to spread the word that Fresh Empire, the FDA's first public education campaign designed to prevent and reduce tobacco use among at-risk multicultural youth ages 15-20, is holding a casting for a new ad campaign that promotes anti-tobacco usage.
Creating a tobacco-less world is a common goal to prevent a healthy lifestyle. We would really appreciate it if you could help us by reviewing the casting information attached and telling the 15-20 year olds that you know. Thank you for your support in this and we look forward to creating a better world with you. Everything starts with the youth.
Here is also a little more information on Fresh Empire from the FDA's website: www.fda.gov/TobaccoProducts/PublicHealthEducation/PublicEducationCampaigns/FreshEmpireCampaign/de...
To submit, please sign up for this casting using the following link: freshempirecasting.castingcrane.com/

Grab some fresh popped popcorn, have your face painted, and make Halloween crafts. Get in the competitive spirit with a game of corn hole, and practice your aim at the pumpkin toss!
