The Utah Department of Health’s (UDOH) TRUTH campaign invites youth ages 18 and under to show their skills in four skateboarding/BMX competitions at Rule the Rocks IV. The competition is exclusive to rural Utah and will take place in Moab on May 12. Youth are invited to enter one of four categories at each event: beginner, intermediate, advanced, and BMX. Rule the Rocks IV is co-sponsored by Arkade Magazine.

“All entrants get prizes, but only the top three from each category get bragging rights–and bigger prizes–so start practicing,” said David Neville, marketing coordinator for The TRUTH. “There are hundreds of things to do in your spare time. Tobacco doesn’t need to be one of them.”

The Moab event, which is one of several that will be held in communities across the state, will be held Thursday, May 12 at the skate park in Swanny City Park, 400 North 100 West, from 4 to 7 p.m. Registration begins at 3 p.m.
