ISTEP Summit

Sure, our message is serious, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have fun. Throughout the year, each chapter organizes its own street marketing activities, then once a year, ISTEP students from all across Iowa get together for the ISTEP summit. It’s where we meet other chapter members and discover even more ways to take action against tobacco.

All Iowa youth who are in grades 7-12 are invited to attend, free of cost. ISTEP Executive Council members plan and lead the summit. Plus, we get great guest presenters from all over the country. Invitations are posted on social media and emailed to chapters who have registered online.

Join us at the Summit on October 13, 2022!


Join us virtually from 9:00am - 12:00 pm, or in person at the Varied Industries Building on the Iowa State Fairgrounds from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm. 

Imagine selfie stations, tram tours of the fairgrounds, team building challenges, classic state fair foods and meeting other young leaders across Iowa. And, most importantly, gaining skills and knowledge to bring back to your local communities about talking to your peers about tobacco use. 

Keynote speakers will be Sarah Noll Wilson and Dr Teresa Peterson with Sarah Noll Wilson Inc., focusing on developing leadership skills among tobacco control.
