Red Ribbon Week & Photo Contest

posted Oct 10, 2016, 11:45 AM by Sharon James
The National Red Ribbon Campaign began in 1985 as a symbol of commitment to raising awareness of the violence and destruction caused by drugs in America. It continues today as a catalyst for educating youth and encouraging participation in drug prevention activities. Red Ribbon week is celebrated the week of October 23-31. 

The Red Ribbon Campaign pledge sets guidelines to help children grow up safe, healthy and drug-free. The guidelines are:
  1. As parents and citizens, we will talk to our children and the children in our lives about the dangers of drug abuse.
  2. We will set clear rules for our children about not using drugs.
  3. We will set a good example for our children by not using illegal drugs or medicine without a prescription.
  4. We will monitor our children's behavior and enforce appropriate consequences, so that our rules are respected.
  5. We will encourage family and friends to follow the same guidelines to keep children safe from substance abuse.
This year, families and schools may enter the 2016 Red Ribbon Photo Contest for the chance to win an iPad and $1,000 for a local school.
Decorate your home or school campus with a Red Ribbon and this year's theme: "YOLO. Be Drug Free."
