Take a minute to VOTE for Idaho's Red Ribbon Week event!
Boise, March 20, 2012 - Last year's Red Ribbon
Rally at the Statehouse was exciting, inspiring and a lot of fun
for all those who took part, and even those who watched the local
media coverage the event attracted. Now, a video of the event
produced by the Boise Police Department and Drug Free Idaho has
been chosen among the top six in a national competition! The winner
gets $100 and a new camera, but the biggest prize is the national
honor of being named the national Red Ribbon Star!
"We're very proud of all the Idaho schools,
businesses, law enforcement agencies and other partners we have at
Free Idaho. That spirit definitely comes across in the contagious
enthusiasm of our annual Red Ribbon Week event!" said Marianne
King, Executive Director of Drug Free Idaho.
"Being acknowledged by the national organization a
huge honor. But we really hope Idaho walks away with the most votes
as best Red Ribbon event in the country!"

About the Red Ribbon Star
The contest is sponsored by the National Family
Partnership, formerly the National Federation of Parents for Drug
Free Youth. The NFP was established as a grassroots, nonprofit
organization in 1980 by a handful of concerned and determined
parents who were convinced they should begin to play a leadership
role in drug prevention. Nancy Reagan was an Honorary Chair of NFP.
Since its founding thirty years ago, NFP has devoted its efforts to
the well-being of youth. Today, NFP is a national leader in drug
prevention education & advocacy. Our mission is to lead and
support our nation's families and communities in nurturing the full
potential of healthy, drug free youth.
Thank you for your support for this
contest, and most importantly for efforts to keep Idaho communities
safe and healthy.
