Schools and Families Across Country Ask for Votes in 2014 Red Ribbon Photo Contest

REd Ribbon ContestMIAMI – Throughout October, in conjunction with the 29th Annual Red Ribbon Week®, families and schools worked to decorate their homes and campuses to promote living healthy, drug-free lifestyles. Now they need your votes to win the grand prize: $1,000 for their school’s drug prevention programs and an iPad for their family or classroom.
The National Red Ribbon Photo Contest, sponsored by the National Family Partnership® and co-sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Administration, was created in an effort to prevent drug use and educate youth during Red Ribbon Week and beyond.
“This contest ensures students hear our Red Ribbon Week message from multiple channels – at school and in their homes,” said NFP President Peggy Sapp. “It gives parents a natural way of bringing up the topics of drug abuse and prevention – and the importance of making smart decisions in the future.”
Voting is easy and the deadline is Nov. 19th. Simply visit www.RedRibbon.org/vote and decide which entry you feel best represents this year’s theme: “Love Yourself. Be Drug Free™”. You may vote up to 10 times per day in support of your favorite photo.
A total of 10 students and one school will be announced Dec.5th as winners of the 2014 National Red Ribbon Photo Contest.
