Stay On The Red Line - 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 14th entry is entitled: Stay On The Red Line

Stay On The Red Line!

Alcohol seems so harmless and exciting to youth that they don’t realize just what one drink can do. Movies, TV shows, and commercials make alcohol seem fun or cool. This is a day you can educate students on the dangers of alcohol use and the effects of drinking underage.

• You can have realistic intoxication simulators setup so that students can get a realistic view of how alcohol effects the body. A great kit for schools to use is called “Fatal Vision® Goggles” that is specially designed to simulate visual impairment caused by alcohol and drugs.

• Pass out materials with facts about alcohol.

• Show students age appropriate programs about the negatives of alcohol.

“You Booze, You Lose.”
