Enter The Boys’ Life Trail Of Courage Contest


If you want to excel at anything in life — school, sports, Scouting, video games … anything — you’ll want to stay away from cigarettes and chewing tobacco.

By pledging to say “no” for a lifetime, you can also win the high-adventure trip of a lifetime.

It’s easy. Just go to the Boy’s Life Trail of Courage website and take the pledge:

  I pledge that I will not use tobacco products, illegal drugs or alcohol. I will do my best to educate my friends and my family to the dangers of using these products. I recommit to living every day by the Scout Oath and Scout Law. I will make the right decision right now and choose to refuse when offered dangerous substances.

In another month or so, there will be a random drawing among all the eligible entries, and one lucky youth will receive an all-expense trip to a BSA High Adventure Base (Philmont Scout Ranch, Northern Tier, or Florida Sea Base). The trip includes round-trip coach-class air transportation from the major United States airport nearest to the winner’s home, ground transportation between airport and high-adventure camp and high-adventure program fees.

To learn more about the dangers of tobacco, visit the Right Decisions Right Now website. 

Take the pledge right now because it’s the right thing to do. Winning a high-adventure trip is just a bonus!
