First- and second-year medical students hosted "Tar Wars," an interactive, anti-tobacco campaign, at two local elementary schools this spring.

Students from Buck Lake and North Florida Christian elementary schools created posters for the competition following an hour-long education program by the medical students.

The winners from Tallahassee will be invited to attend a luncheon at the May meeting of the Florida Academy of Family Physicians Conference at Disney World.
