The National Family Partnership® (NFP) announces the national contest for its 28th annual Red Ribbon Week®, Oct. 23-31.

Here's how to enter to win $1,000 for your K-12 school and an iPad for the home:

1.) Students bring the Red Ribbon Week® message home by working alongside parents to decorate their front door, mailbox or fence with a red ribbon and this year's theme "A Healthy Me Is Drug Free."

2.) Take a photo with the family and your Red Ribbon Week® decoration, then upload to redribbon.org/contest by Nov. 4 (must be 18+ to upload your photos).

3.) The voting begins! Ask your family and friends to vote for your entry at redribbon.org/vote Nov. 5-19.

Ten lucky winners from regions across the U.S. will win. 
 
Winners will be announced at redribbon.org on December 6th and recognized at winning schools throughout December.

"Students will once again take Red Ribbon Week's® message of prevention home to their neighborhoods with this national contest," said the NFP's Volunteer President Peggy Sapp. "By decorating their homes together with this year's Red Ribbon theme, families carry the message to their communities."

The nation's oldest and largest drug prevention campaign reaches more than 80 million people nationwide. 
 
The DEA is co-sponsoring this year's national contest. "DEA is excited to partner with the National Family Partnership® on this contest that empowers communities to come together to talk about the drug problem," said DEA Administrator Michele M. Leonhart. "Red Ribbon Week® is also when we honor DEA Special Agent Enrique 'Kiki' Camarena, who made the ultimate sacrifice to keep our communities safe."

Adds the NFP's Peggy Sapp: "Take the Red Ribbon Week® pledge across America to help children grow up safe, healthy and drug free." Visit redribbon.org/contest for contest information.
