CMS participating in Red Ribbon photo contest

CARLINVILLE (Nov. 9, 2017) – Throughout October, in conjunction with the National Family Partnership’s 32nd annual Red Ribbon Week, families and schools decorated their homes and campuses to promote living healthy, drug-free lifestyles. Each decoration features a red ribbon and this year’s national theme, “Your Future Is Key, So Stay Drug Free.” Now, Carlinville Middle School is seeking votes to win the grand prize: $1,000 for the school’s drug prevention programs. A total of $20,000 will be awarded to 20 schools across the country.

“This contest was designed to provide a natural opportunity for parents and educators to talk to kids about drug abuse and prevention in a relaxed and fun way,” said NFP President Peggy Sapp. “We are asking everyone to participate by voting for their favorite entry to help support families and schools in spreading the drug free message to children.”

To vote, visit redribbon.org/contest by Nov. 17. The winners will be announced Dec. 1.
