Students Pledge to Support Tobacco-Free Rodeos

High school athletes across the state are welcoming rodeo season by pledging to compete tobacco-free. Since 2008, students have been able to participate in a series of tobacco-free rodeos every year thanks to a partnership between the Montana High School Rodeo Association and the Montana Tobacco Use Prevention Program (MTUPP). Because of this partnership, Montana became the first state in the nation to offer tobacco-free rodeos. Learn about scholarships available to those who sign the pledge.
