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