Activity 9: Big Tobacco Said What?!?

Big Tobacco executives have made some outrageous and offensive statements, often targeting teens! This is your Chapter's chance to expose these awful and real quotes, and educate your community.

  • Points earned: 150
  • Chapter member needed: 5+
  • Prep time: 1
  • Supplies needed: Computers, paper and pens, poster board, refreshments (optional)

Doing the activity

STEP 1- Planning: Find a date, time, and location with computers for Chapter members to come together and do some research.

STEP 2 – Start Searching: On the chosen date, have Chapter members start looking through Big Tobacco’s online documents. Work in groups to brainstorm key words that can be searched ahead of time.

STEP 3 – Find the most outrageous: Have blank poster boards hung around the room. As people find outrageous quotes, have members write them on the poster board for everyone to see. Make sure to note their source, too. Leave enough time at the event to share quotes with one another and choose the most shocking ones.

STEP 4 – Share: Hang the posters in a highly visible place in your school or community for everyone to see. If you have another event coming up or want to recruit new Chapter members, share the details on the poster.

STEP 5 – Report back: Post pictures and a description of your activity on your Chapter page to get points and attention!
