    Today is the day! The National Family Partnership (NFP), invites families and schools across America to participate in its 5th Annual National Red Ribbon Week Photo Contest. Entries are now being accepted. The contest, which is co-sponsored by the DEA, will be held in conjunction with the 30th Annual Red Ribbon Week (October 23-31).

    “Students will once again take the Red Ribbon Campaign prevention message into their homes, neighborhoods and schools with this contest,” said NFP President Peggy Sapp. “It’s a fun and creative way for parents and schools to educate children about the dangers of drug use while they decorate their homes and schools using this year’s theme, “Respect Yourself. Be Drug Free.”

    Entries will be accepted through Nov. 3 and the winners will be announced on December 4.This year, $20,000 will be awarded to schools in ten regions across the country.
