North Sanpete Middle School

asks for community input on

Red Ribbon Week photo contest


MORONI—North Sanpete Middle School is asking parents and other school supporters to vote for the school’s entry in the National Family Partnership’s Red Ribbon Week Photo Contest.

The school’s photo submission was taken during a week-long anti-drug and anti-bullying campaign, Oct. 30-Nov. 2.

During the week, each day had a different theme that was used to send various anti-drug messages to students. Monday was a black-out day, where students dressed in black; Tuesday, which was Halloween, was Costume Day, to “scare away” drugs; Wednesday was Country Day, encouraging students to wear cowboy boots to “kick” drugs out of school; Thursday was Team Day, when students wore apparel from their favorite teams; and Friday was Crazy Day, telling students to “go crazy” against drugs.

The photo, picturing many of the school’s students outside of the school with a large red ribbon made of pledges, written and signed on red paper, made by students to grow up safe, healthy and drug-free. It also shows a banner hanging in front of the school declaring, “Your Future is Key, So Stay Drug Free.”

People may view the photo and vote for it now through Nov. 17 at
