The purpose of this study is to develop a base of information that will expand our understanding of smokeless tobacco, or chewing tobacco use in young adolescents in two rural schools. Specifically, the aims of this research are to: 1. Identify the extent of smokeless tobacco use among students in two rural schools. 2. Understand factors related to young adolescents' attitudes and perceptions of smokeless tobacco use in two rural schools. 3. Identify the stages of receptivity to tobacco use present in the two rural schools. 4. Describe the factors that prevent the use of smokeless tobacco by young adolescents in two rural schools. 5. Describe the factors that would induce young adolescents in two rural schools to quit using smokeless tobacco. Focus group methodology is the primary form of data collection in young adolescents in the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade. A Smokeless Tobacco Use Survey adds quantitative data to the study. Content analysis and theme derivation from focus group transcriptions and descriptive statistics from questionnaire data will be performed. The long term goal of this research is to use the information acquired in this study to design and test technology implemented prevention programs for smokeless tobacco use for rural and frontier school districts, thus, decreasing the use of smokeless tobacco in school-aged children and adolescents.
