About Red Ribbon Week
Red Ribbon Week itself is the oldest and largest drug prevention campaign in the country. It is always during the last full week in October. Red Ribbon Week serves as a method and opportunity for communities and individuals to take a stand against drug abuse and educate others on its destruction. In addition, Imdrugfree.com reports that Red Ribbon Week commemorates the sacrifice made by Camarena in his effort to create a drug free world.
The 2019 National Red Ribbon Week theme is: Send a Message. Stay Drug Free.™
Izabella Ware, a student from Griswold Middle School in Griswold, CT, created the winning theme for 2019 Red Ribbon Week, which takes place October 23-31. Ware's theme, "Send A Message. Stay Drug Free." was selected among thousands of Red Ribbon theme ideas submitted by students, parents, educators and members of communities across America.
