Recognition Day - 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 18th and entry is entitled: Recognition Day

• Create a Red Ribbon Hall of Fame, designate a special wall or create a scrapbook, plaque
or place to display pictures of individuals, groups, businesses, and agencies who have made significant contribution to prevention efforts.

• Do not forget your teachers and administrators, recognize the time and energy they spent
making red ribbon week a success, let the media know about your extra special staff.

• Moms, Dads, and Guardians need recognition too, take time to thank them for being drug-free.

• Write thank you letters to businesses in our community for celebrating Red Ribbon Week and for being strong role models for students in your town.

• Give special recognition awards to individuals and groups who have made outstanding contributions to tobacco, alcohol and other drug use prevention.

“Thank people in your life today that give a good example of being drug-free.”

Head over to our website for more Red Ribbon Week information. We also have a page dedicated to the National 2013 Red Ribbon Week Theme "A Healthy Me is Drug Free!" where you can purchase many different promotional items that you can use and pass out to students during Red Ribbon Week Oct. 23-31st.
