About Red Ribbon Week
Red Ribbon Week is the oldest and largest drug prevention campaign in the country. Although the start end dates can vary slightly depending on the organization and source, Red Ribbon Week generally takes place the last full week in October, with the weekends before and following the last full week included as appropriate celebration dates. This year Red Ribbon Week will be celebrated October 23-31, 2013.
The 2013 Red Ribbon Theme: A Healthy Me Is Drug Free®
Congratulations to Aly Falck, a 7th grader in Solon, Ohio, for creating the 2013 Red Ribbon Theme.
Aly's digital arts teacher, Cheryl Holsapfel, learned about the National Family Partnership’s 2013 Red Ribbon Theme Contest from her school principal, Genie Green, at Solon Middle School and thought it would be a great opportunity for a “teachable moment” to talk to her students about drugs.
