Schools and community members are encouraged to participate in local events, which will include a variety of school-based activities, documentary screenings, and a family game night.

Celebrated annually, the Red Ribbon Campaign is the nation's oldest and largest drug prevention campaign. During the 8-day event, millions of people across the country unite and take a visible stand for healthy, drug-free lifestyles by wearing and displaying red ribbons and by participating in anti-drug activities.
The 2019 National Red Ribbon Week theme is: Send a Message. Stay Drug Free.™ The theme is a call to action to speak out in support of healthy choices. The theme is also a reminder that by staying drug free, you are sending a message to yourself and others about how much you value yourself, your overall health, your community and your future.
Red Ribbon week is intended to be fun AND effective.
