STEPS Youth Council New PSA

By Julia Brilla, Catherine Myers and Carson Stifel (STEPS Youth Council Members)

 

For our project, we chose to write and direct a PSA about e-cigarettes. As we brainstormed, we were inspired by viral cooking videos on social media websites such as Facebook and Youtube. Our PSA featured a person combining household chemicals that are found in e-cigs and “baking” them in the oven as if they were making something to eat. When they opened the oven, the concoction of chemicals was turned into an e-cigarette. The closing line was “If you wouldn’t eat it, then why would you smoke it?” Our hope is to educate people about what is in e-cigarettes because if they know what chemicals they’re consuming, they’ll be more likely to stop smoking them.
Check it out and let us know what you think!
