THE BRONX - Students at Saint Athanasius School are trying to make their community a smoke-free zone with their own creative marketing campaign.

The school used a skit to help them raise awareness about tobacco advertisements marketed toward kids after receiving a $300 grant from the Bronx Smoke-Free Partnership.

The students say they spent six weeks learning why smoking is bad and developing their play.
