What is Red Ribbon Week About?
Red Ribbon Week celebrates a healthy lifestyle and the choice to be drug free. This week long celebration is meant to bring awareness to our young students about choosing to be drug free and make positive choices that will help them lead a healthy lifestyle. This week is also dedicated to bullying awareness-how to recognize it and what to do about it when you see it.
There will be a poster and essay contest for grades K-5. You must include the Red Ribbon Week theme into your poster to qualify. You can enter a poster for the Drug Free theme, and you can do a poster and/or essay for Stop a Bully theme.
“YOLO: Be Drug Free” Or “Be a Hero, Stop a Bully”
Posters must be 22”X28” and any type of medium can be used.
Teachers will choose a winner from each classroom. Then they will choose a winner from each grade level. All entries must be turned in to their teacher by no later than Monday, October 31stt; then 3 school-wide winners will be chosen (K/1 winner, 2/3 winner, 4/5 winner). The 3 school winners will be invited to the district competition/recognition ceremony on November 29th.
