Red Ribbon Ideas For Government Representatives

Here are some ideas to make this year's Red Ribbon Week celebration the best yet!

  • Sponsor a local school or school system with Red Ribbon Theme Merchandise.
  • Use our social media tips to post Red Ribbon Week messages on your Facebook and Twitter accounts.
  • Tell your staff and constituents to enter the Red Ribbon Photo Contest for a chance to win an iPad for themselves - and $1,000 for their child's school.
  • Talk to your staff, constituents and family about securing and taking inventory of their medicine cabinet to prevent prescription drug abuse.
  • Encourage your constituents to take a stab at creating the 2018 National Red Ribbon Theme. They'll gain national recognition and $500 of Red Ribbon theme merchandise for their school. This year's theme was created by a student at Solon Middle School in Solon, Ohio.
