October 28, 2018
Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

Red Ribbon Week will be held at the South Tama Elementary starting October 29 and running through November 2. Red Ribbon Week is designed to raise awareness about drug prevention education & advocacy.

The National Family Partnership organized the first Nationwide Red Ribbon Campaign. NFP provides drug awareness by sponsoring the annual National Red Ribbon Campaign. Since its beginning in 1985, the Red Ribbon has touched the lives of millions of people around the world. In response to the murder of DEA Agent Enrique Camarena, angered parents and youth in communities across the country began wearing Red Ribbons as a symbol of their commitment to raise awareness of the killing and destruction cause by drugs in America.

This year's overall theme is Life is Your Journey, Travel Drug Free. Each day of the week also has a theme as follows:
