Good Times - Ideas for Red Ribbon Week Activities

NIMCO, Inc. Encourages Red Ribbon Week Activities


Over the next few weeks leading up to Red Ribbon Week 2013, NIMCO will be sharing some activity ideas on our blog that teachers and community leaders can use to help students get excited about Red Ribbon Week. Many of these ideas can be incorporated in your school leading up to Red Ribbon Week.

Our twelfth entry is entitled: Good Times  
Poster Contest, Drug Prevention, Red Ribbon Week
Poster contests are great for Red Ribbon Week!

This is a day to make youth realize how they do not need drugs or alcohol to have a good time.

• Poster Contest - Students create posters showing fun things you can do without drugs.

• Students bring a photo of a favorite memory that was made to show that drugs don’t have to be involved to have a great time.

• Use student baby pictures for a giant collage entitled, "Born to be Drug-Free."

• Have a parade! March through the school or town declaring “We are drug-free!”

• Students dress like their favorite decade: 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s.

TODAY’S MESSAGE
“Great memories shouldn’t be wasted on drugs.”
