Norwalk Warriors- Thursday, January 3, 2013 NATIONAL RED RIBBON WEEK WINNERS ARE FROM IOWA The White family from Ames, won a $L000-Drug- Prevention Grant for Kadoka Area School and an iPad for their home. The National Family Partnership (NFP) announced the winners of the 2012 National Red Rib- bon Photo Contest: "The Best Me Is Drug Free." The nation's oldest and largest drug prevention campaign reaches more than 80 million people every year. Stu- dents from throughout the United States participated by decorating their homes together with their parents - mailboxes, front doors and fences. Parents uploaded photos to RedRibbon.org, then friends and family voted and the entries with the most online votes won (from ten regions across America that included every state). "As schools across America celebrated Red Ribbon Week, our contest helped students take the message home," said Peggy Sapp, NFP's volunteer president: "By entering the contest and decorating their homes to- gether, families carried the message to their communi- ties." In 1985 after the murder of a DEA agent, parents, youth and teachers in communities across the country began wearing Red Ribbons as a symbol of their com- mitment to raise awareness of the destruction caused by drugs. This year, families got involved by entering a contest to promote awareness in their neighborhoods and win a drug-prevention grant for their schools. "The contest helped us talk to our children about drug prevention," said morn Kristie Stone. "Kids in the neigh- borhood had lots of questions and we explained why we were decorating with the theme for Red Ribbon Week." Said Principal Steve Flynn from winning school War- ren H. Meeker Elementary School: "Drug prevention education information is so important because you get one body and you need to take care of it. We are trying to prepare kids for the best future possible. We want our students to be good decision makers and do things that will help and not hurt in the future." The DEA is co-sponsoring this year's national con- test. "DEA is excited to partner with the National Fam- ily Partnership@ on this contest that empowers com- munities to come together to talk about the drug prob- lem," said DEA Administrator Michele M. Leonhart. "Red Ribbon Week@ is also when we honor DEA Spe- cial Agent Enrique 'Kiki' Camarena, who made the ulti- mate sacrifice to keep our communities safe." ..........
