MISSOULA -

High school students across Missoula found out what life would be like after a serious work place injury. The No Jack Games on Thursday at Big Sky High School, featured a series of games to encourage students to make safe decisions to avoid a work place injury.

It featured competitions like "Head Injury Hole-in-One" and an "One-Handed Dressing", all aimed at encouraging students to listen to their "work place voices".

Montana State Fund, a workers compensation insurance company, organized the event.

"It shows them in a fun way that it's not worth it, it's not worth getting hurt on the job," said Mary Boyle with Montana State Fund.

The No Jack Games kick off a media outreach campaign, which aims to reduce workplace injuries among young workers.
