Our voice is bigger when more people hear it. One way ISTEP spreads our life-saving message is through social media. This year’s Challenge is to get YOU to help spread the word.

How’s it work?

Everyone loves a friendly competition, right? Designate one chapter member to track your chapter participation. Use tally marks to keep track of your chapter’s involvement. Send your chapter’s grand total by the last Friday of the month (mark your calendars now so you don’t forget!). Email, text or call with your chapter name and total to: or 515-321-7437. One hard-working chapter will win the Chapter Challenge on a quarterly basis.The chapter will win bragging rights and the ISTEP Youth Coordinator's personal attention towards a tobacco prevention event of their choice as a celebration for winning.
