We present the initial results from the Spitzer Survey of the Small Magellanic Cloud (S^3MC), which imaged the star-forming body of the SMC in all seven MIPS and IRAC wave bands. We find that the F_8/F_(24) ratio (an estimate of PAH abundance) has large spatial variations and takes a wide range of values that are unrelated to metallicity but anticorrelated with 24 μm brightness and F_(24)/F_(70) ratio. This suggests that photodestruction is primarily responsible for the low abundance of PAHs…
