For the tenth consecutive year Clifford Cohen's AnimAction will be
presenting the TEAM (Tobacco Education Awareness Message) Awards.
Twenty-seven middle schools have participated in AnimAction's filmmaking
program this year. Students work together in creating animated Public
Service Announcements (PSAs). The award winning PSAs will be aired on
network and cable TV. Previous PSAs have been distributed by UNICEF and
have been finalists in international children's and animation festivals.
This year, Rob Paulsen, the voice of Pinky on STEVEN SPIELBERG PRESENTS
PINKY & THE BRAIN, will host the event. The awards ceremony, including live
entertainment and a screening of the award winners, will take place at 7 pm
in Royce Hall, on the UCLA campus. The event is by invitation only. For
