jQuery: How to fire event when an option is selected?

I have a select tag with a few option tags nested inside. I have a few seperate divs on the page that are initially hidden when the document loads.

How could I use jQuery to fire an event that shows certain divs when their corresponding option is selected? Is this possible with jQuery?

I'm pretty terrible and JS and Jquery, but I built something stupid that functions. I'm sure there is likely a better way to do it, but this will hopefully at least give you an idea.


Thanks, I built on this and I have exactly what I need now!
