The National Family Partnership has announced its annual call-for-entries for the new theme of next year’s Red Ribbon Week.
Peggy Sapp, NFP’s volunteer president, said the winning slogan and design will be used throughout 2013 at thousands of schools and communities across America. In its 28th year as the nation’s largest and oldest drug prevention campaign, Red Ribbon Week reaches 80 million people each year throughout the United States. The winner will receive $500 worth of Red Ribbon Week 2013 merchandise for his or her K-12 school.
Entries must be received by Dec. 10 via email to redrib email@example.com (or via mail to National Family Partnership, 2490 Coral Way, Miami, FL 33145). Include your name, school, telephone number and email address. Contest rules and full details are available at www.redrib bon.org/enter.
Red Ribbon Week is celebrated in schools across America, with large banners and signs hung from marquees and fences. Themes and designs should work within this context. Themes should be brief and as catchy as possible (The 2012 theme was “The Best Me Is Drug Free.” 2011’s theme was “It’s Up To Me To Be Drug Free.” The theme for 2010 was “I Am Drug Free: Choices = Consequences.”)
While the red ribbon should be prominently featured in the design, it is not required. Refer to the red ribbon logo at www.redrib bon. org. People shouldn’t be afraid to use other colors (in addition to red) in their entries.
The winner will be recognized at the 2013 Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America’s Annual Leadership Forum. The winning slogan will also be recognized via Red Ribbon Week’s national media relations and social media campaigns.
