The 2021 Red Ribbon Week Poster Contest ACPS elementary and high school winners have been announced: Caitlin Feehely, a junior at Alexandria City High School (ACHS), and Ashly Isabel Luna Jimenez, a kindergarten student from William Ramsay Elementary School, provided wonderful prevention messages on the benefits of a drug-free lifestyle. As the theme was “Drug Free Looks Like Me,” both students displayed creativity in focusing on why students prefer being drug-free as it allows them to have a clear mind to make the right decisions, enjoy life and learn.

In addition to receiving a $100 gift card, the Red Ribbon Week winners’ posters will be featured as part of the 2022 Red Ribbon Week campaign celebrated each October in communities across the nation. This drug prevention awareness campaign is an ideal way for people and communities to unite and take a visible stand against drugs. 

This contest is hosted locally in collaboration with the ACPS Family and Community Engagement Center, the Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition of Alexandria, SCAN of Northern Virginia and the Mayor’s Campaign to End Bullying.
