Congratulations to Tricia Nelson of Locust Corner Elementary School in Cincinnati for creating this year’s Red Ribbon Theme: Be Happy. Be Brave. Be Drug Free. ™ Tricia’s theme was chosen from hundreds of submissions through the National Red Ribbon Theme Contest, which runs from January 1 through December 2. Her winning theme will help amplify the campaign’s mission, which is to encourage children, families and communities to live healthy, happy and drug-free lives. It also serves as a reminder that we are all empowered with shaping the communities around us through positivity, bravery and strength. We hope the theme encourages everyone to express themselves and their feelings no matter what.
