The National Family Partnership announced the national contest for its 27th annual Red Ribbon Week has been extended one more week, due to Hurricane Sandy. The online voting period has also been extended by a week, and is now rescheduled for Nov. 10 through the 24.

This year, families can get involved by entering a contest to promote awareness in their neighborhoods and win a drug prevention grant for their schools.

To participate in the contest families and students will decorate the front of their homes with this year’s message: “The Best Me Is Drug Free.”
