Did you know that each day in the United States nearly 4,800 adolsecents (aged 11-17) smoke their first cigarette?
Did you know that it is estimated that at least 4.5 million U.S. adolescents are cigarette smokers?
It's true. Source
We all know that Jackie Chan does not smoke and does not approve of smoking. In his films Jackie always tries to include an anti-smoking message and discourages the depiction of smoking in movies. Click here to see Jackie at work for an anti-smoking campaign.
Well now you have a chance to help Jackie encourage kids NEVER to start smoking. All you have to do is make a poster which gets this message across: DON'T SMOKE!
There are great prizes to be won and all entries will be posted on the Kids Club website. The winning poster will be featured on the front page of the site AND in the newsletter. This contest will be judged by Jackie Chan himself!!!!
You must be a member of the Jackie Chan Fan Club for Kids. If you're not a member, why not join now? The prizes alone are worth more than the membership fee!
On a sheet of paper at least as big as typing paper (it's okay if it's bigger), create a poster which delivers the message that smoking is BAD. Your poster must have a graphic (a graphic is either a drawing, photo, or logo) AND should have easy-to-read text. It's best to make it colorful. It's that simple! Remember, the most effective posters have a catchy phrase. For example, if you were to make a poster to tell people not to drink alcohol you might do something like this:
First Prize: First prize winner receives a Jackie Chan "My Story" Action figure (12" tall) from Dragon Toys
Second Prize: Second prize winner receives a HARD COVER copy of Jackie's awesome book "I Am Jackie Chan: My Life in Action"
Third Prize: Third prize winner receives three books: The Tuxedo, Jackie Chan Adventures Jade's Secret Power, and Jackie Chan Adventures Sign of the Ox
Fourth Prize: Fourth prize winner receives the Amazing Dancing Kung-Fu Hamster
