AMERICAN FORK, UTAH (August 15, 2012) -- To honor all Utah parks being smoke free since 2008, OUTRAGE (Utah County's anti-tobacco youth group) and Truth Against Tobacco has partnered with Milosport to hold a skate park event at the Greenwood Skate Park (500 South 200 East, American Fork). An amateur competition will be held as well as performances by professional skaters.
Skate competitions will be held during the event for beginning, intermediate and advanced divisions. Registration will begin at 9:00 a.m. with the competition being held at 11:00 a.m. All ages are invited to attend.
The park will be divided into three sections. The winner is determined by the best average score. Jam format will be used and tons of prizes will be handed out.
OUTRAGE will be there to promote smoke-free parks in Utah with fun-filled educational booths for all ages. A dunking booth, cotton candy, and face painting will be some of the booths. Utah County SafeKids will also be there with injury prevention information as well as a drawing for 22 "all-sport" helmets. Other drawings will include prizes such as skateboards, helmets, and gift certificates from many local restaurants. The winners must be present during the drawing to win.
