Door decoration ideas for Red Ribbon Week include creating vibrant graffiti art, implementing lessons from the curriculum into the decorations and using seasonal decor. Many children enjoy including Halloween decorations, such as the headless horseman and bats, to align the week with the holiday during the month of October.
Red Ribbon Week is a national effort to raise drug awareness and prevent youth from experimenting with drugs. Students often engage in door decorating contests to contemplate the meaning of the week. Many students incorporate quotes, school colors and the dangers of drug abuse into their door decorations. Younger students may use lighter messages, such as a frog theme with the slogan, "We're toad-ally against drugs."
