Win $1,000 for your school, iPad for your family

MIAMI (Oct. 22, 2014) – Calling all schools and families across America … there’s still time to be part of the annual Red Ribbon Photo Contest, which comes with the chance to win an iPad and $1,000 for your K-12 school of choice. But hurry; the deadline to enter is Nov. 4.

As the nation celebrates the 29th Annual Red Ribbon Week, Oct. 23 to 31, the National Family Partnership (NFP) is urging students, families and schools to take part in its Red Ribbon Photo Contest, which promotes drug awareness and prevention among youth.

“This contest is a great way for families and schools to deliver the ‘Love Yourself. Be Drug Free.’ message,” said NFP President Peggy Sapp. “By uniting and involving families, schools and communities, we can be more effective in helping our children make smart decisions and grow up safe, healthy and drug free.”

Ten families across America will be selected to win the grand prize: an iPad and $1,000 donation to a K-12 school of their choosing. There will also be one prize awarded for a school decoration. Here’s how simple it is to enter:

  • Students and families decorate their home’s front door, mailbox or fence with a double-looped red ribbon and the theme, “Love Yourself. Be Drug Free.” Schools may decorate any part of their campus.
  • Take a photo with your decoration and upload it to now through Nov. 4. You must be 18 years or older to upload the photo and can do so from any desktop or mobile device.
  • Ask family and friends to vote for your entry beginning Nov. 5.

Eleven winners will be announced Dec. 5. To learn more about contest rules, visit
