  • Red Ribbon Week is celebrated in schools across America, where banners and signs are hung from marquees and fences. Whatever the theme or design you create should fit well within that context.
  • Themes should be brief and as catchy as possible. Last year's theme was "Be Kind To Your Mind. Live Drug Free." Other recent theme slogans include "Celebrate Life. Live Drug Free." ,"Drug Free Looks Like Me.",  "Be Happy. Be Brave. Be Drug Free.", "Send A Message. Stay Drug Free.", "Life Is Your Journey. Travel Drug Free.", "Your Future Is Key, So Stay Drug Free.", "YOLO. Be Drug Free.", "Love Yourself. Be Drug Free.", "A Healthy Me Is Drug Free.", "The Best Me Is Drug Free," and “It's Up To Me To Be Drug Free."
  • While the red ribbon should be prominently featured in the design, don’t be afraid to use other colors, as well.
