Red Ribbon Week 2011 Launches New Contest: "It's Up To Me To Be Drug Free"

By Simone Brown Knight on 09/29/2011 @ 03:34 PM

Students (K-12) Can Win $1,000 for Their Schools and an iPad 2 for themselves

The National Family Partnership (NFP) announced the new contest for its 26th annual Red Ribbon Week, October 23-31: “It’s Up to Me to Be Drug Free.”  The nation’s oldest and largest drug prevention campaign reaches more than 80 million people nationwide.  “As schools across America celebrate Red Ribbon Week this year, students will take the message home,” said Peggy Sapp, NFP’s volunteer president.  “By entering the contest and decorating their homes together, families carry the message to their communities.”

Students (K-12) can enter by decorating their homes together with their parents - mailboxes, front doors or fences. Parents (18 or older) can upload photos to www.redribbon.org or www.facebook.com/RedRibbonWeek , then friends and family can vote for their entry, November 1-15. The entries with most votes will win.

The U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is co-sponsoring this year’s national contest. “SAMHSA is honored to have been part of this effort for many years, and we hope together we will continue to help prevent substance abuse within our families, schools and communities,” said Frances Harding, SAMHSA’s Director of the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention.”

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency has also supported the campaign since its very beginnings: “Wear the Red Ribbon to show you care about having a healthy body and a clear mind free of drugs,” said Michele M. Leonhart, DEA Administrator.  “Take the pledge, because it’s up to you and me to be drug free!”
