Rock Solid Wins National Award!

Congratulations to Rock Solid prevention youth for their receipt of a national award for their Red Ribbon Week vaping prevention message posted on the Friday Harbor High School chemistry door.  See below for the official announcement and a picture of their entry.  They received one of ten Judges picks – the award for Educational entry.

What a great start to implementing their planned activities for the school year.  They worked on their plan at the CADCA Youth Leadership training in July.  (Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America)

They also successfully have been able to get the quitline info on the back of all student ID Cards.  They are now in the process of implementing their third iteration of suicide prevention messaging to their peers (suicide hotline info is also on the back of ID’s).

Great work Rock Solid!

Here’s the official announcement:

Congratulations to the 2019 National Red Ribbon Photo Contest Winners

National Family Partnership wishes to thank everyone across the country who participated in the 9th Annual National Red Ribbon Photo Contest Co-Sponsored by the DEA.  Held in conjunction with National Red Ribbon Week, the contest is an opportunity to engage families and communities nationwide in our efforts to keep Americans informed about the benefits of staying drug-free through the use of photography.

Ten winners received the most votes in their designated regions, and ten winners were chosen by a panel of judges. All twenty winners will receive an Apple iPad for themselves and a $1,000 donation will be made to the K-12 school of their choice to be used for drug-prevention. 

Thank you again for participating and congratulations to the winners. We celebrate with you and look forward to your continued engagement with the Red Ribbon Campaign.
