Red Ribbon Week is observed to bring awareness to drug problems and help educate the youth of our nation about drugs. In association with the National Family Partnership, formerly the National Federation of Parents for Drug Free Youth, National Red Ribbon Week is observed in October. Since its beginning in 1985, the Red Ribbon serves as a catalyst to mobilize communities to educate youth and encourage participation in drug prevention activities. Various fun activities and dress-up days were held this week throughout Altus schools to help promote Red Ribbon Week.
