Due to the nationwide pandemic and social distancing guidelines, this year's celebration will look a little differently than the ones in the past.

Communities Can:

  • Post Red Ribbon Week fact cards on your social media to let your followers know the facts.
  • Display red ribbons around your home.
  • Create a PSA about Red Ribbon Week and living life drug free to share on social media.


Your School Can:

  • Have a drive-up party and decorate your car with red ribbons and balloons and drive through your neighborhood or school parking lot with friends.
  • Sponsor a virtual Red Ribbon Week activity (e.g., fun run; bike-a-thon; bookmark, poster, or essay contest; classroom door decorating contest).
  • Incorporate drug prevention facts and tips in your school-wide announcements and websites throughout Red Ribbon Week.
  • Have a virtual Red Ribbon Rally with performances by local talent or school groups.
