What Is The Purpose Of The National Red Ribbon Photo Contest?
The National Red Ribbon Photo Contest is intended to involve families, neighborhoods, schools and communities in the Red Ribbon Week celebration. Kids bring the Red Ribbon message home. Families work together to decorate their front door, fence or mailbox with the Red Ribbon theme, spreading the drug free message in neighborhoods and communities. Schools support the families’ entries because they support the Red Ribbon message and hope to win $1,000 to use towards future drug prevention efforts. By working together, we can create a tipping point for change in our communities.
