Some teens in Marion County are celebrating Red Ribbon Week, which is the oldest and largest drug prevention program in the nation. They're committing to a drug-free lifestyle by participating in several of the program's activities this week.
Wednesday is "Wear Red Day." Every student that wears red at each of the high schools can enter a prize drawing. Thursday, the theme is "Turn your back on drugs," so students who wear their shirts backwards can also enter the drawing. Friday, the theme is "Say boo to drugs," which incorporates Halloween.
A student from each of the schools will win a prize package that includes movie tickets, free bowling passes, and other goodies.
Students who are interested in joining the Teen Taskforce, there will be a meeting at the Marion County Family Resource Network Office on Wednesday, November 7th at 5:00 p.m., and at North Marion High School on November 8th after school hours.
