Campbellsville Middle School will celebrate Red Ribbon Week soon with several special events.
Red Ribbon Week is the largest drug prevention campaign in the country, and serves as a way for students to take a stand against illegal drugs.
This year, Red Ribbon Week is Oct. 23-27.
Events include special dress up days and other activities.
Monday is United We Stand Against Drugs Day, and students will wear red, white and blue.
Tuesday is Don’t Get Tied Down with Drugs Day, and students will wear tie-dye items.
On Wednesday, students will wear camouflage for Be All You Can Be: Drug Free Day.
Thursday is Real Heroes Don’t Do Drugs Day, with students wearing superhero items.
And Friday is Team Up Against Drugs Day, and students can wear Campbellsville or team clothing.
Students are asked to not paint their faces or color their hair for the dress-up days.
On Monday, Oct. 30, a guest speaker from the United States Attorney’s Office will talk to CMS students about drug awareness.
Students will be given Red Ribbon Week bracelets at the beginning of the week, and those who are wearing them through the week will randomly be given tickets for prizes.
