Red Ribbon Week is by far the largest and oldest drug prevention campaign in the country, and one of the most effective for preventing drug use among youth.

The Red Ribbon Week health observance is actively celebrated in nearly all US middle schools and high schools, which have locally based campaigns for Red Ribbon Week every year.

Speakers at school assembly programs, educational videos, student skits, and other programs and activities are offered.

Red Ribbon Week empowers communities and individuals across the US, especially youth, to take a stand for drug prevention and education.
