Red Ribbon School Presentations

The Red Ribbon Campaign is the oldest and largest drug prevention program in the nation, reaching millions of young people during Red Ribbon Week, October 23-31 each year.

Red Ribbon Week reaches over 80 million people each year. This year’s theme is to amplify the campaign’s mission to encourage children, families, and communities to live healthy, happy and drug-free lives.

This year’s theme is “Be Kind to Your Mind. Live Drug Free.”™ Submitted by Danielle Helm, a Youth Service Coordinator from Russell County Middle School in Russell Springs, Kentucky. This year’s theme is a reminder that everyday Americans across the country make significant daily contributions to their communities by being the best they can be because they live Drug-Free!

Annually, the San Antonio Council on Alcohol and Drug Awareness (SACADA) provides FREE presentations to the community. These presentations are age-appropriate and focus on the history of Red Ribbon Week and how to live a healthy and drug-free life.

SACADA receives hundreds of requests annually and will do its best to accommodate your request. **Submission of a presentation request is not a confirmation**

Once a presentation is confirmed, elementary schools will receive 500 ribbons and middle and high school students will receive 500 wristbands (based on availability.) The presenter will deliver them on the day of the presentation or before.

We are no longer taking Presentation Requests as this time. For more information, contact Denise Smith at
