Red Ribbon Week Contest

There’s still time to be part of the annual Red Ribbon Photo Contest, which comes with the chance to win an iPad and $1,000 for your K-12 school of choice. The deadline to enter is Nov. 4.

As the nation celebrates the 29th Annual Red Ribbon Week, Oct. 23-31, the National Family Partnership (NFP) is urging students, families and schools to take part in its Red Ribbon Photo Contest, which promotes drug awareness and prevention among youth.

“This contest is a great way for families and schools to deliver the ‘Love Yourself. Be Drug Free.’ message,” said NFP President Peggy Sapp.

Celebrate My Drive

Did you know car crashes are the #1 cause of injury among teens? It’s time to spread awareness of the dangers of distracted driving!

October 15 – 24 Iroquois West will compete in the State Farm-sponsored CELEBRATE MY DRIVE event, which promotes distraction-free driving.  Our school could win some BIG prizes, including $25,000-$100,000 or a concert with a chart-topping musical artist!

Participating is easy – simply visit, answer a few questions regarding safe driving, and vote for IW!  You can vote once per day per each of your valid email addresses.

Last year, the winner was Eureka High School.  Why shouldn’t IW stake a claim to this year’s prizes?  It’s going to take the entire community to be victorious.  Pledge to take just a few minutes of each day to vote and ask your family members and neighbors to do the same!
