Governor Nathan Deal and the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities encourage you to apply for the 2012 Red Ribbon Awards program. We want to recognize schools, groups and communities that have done an exemplary job promoting and educating others about substance abuse awareness, drug-free living, and healthy lifestyle choices as part of the Georgia Red Ribbon Campaign.
The awards are divided into the following four categories: elementary; middle school; high school; organizations including businesses, community organizations, medical facilities, faith-based organizations or higher education facilities. An exciting celebration recognizing the finalists in each category is planned for early spring of 2013.
Take a look at the Governor's Red Ribbon Campaign Planning & Resource Guide. If you scroll down to pages 17 and 18 you will find information about the 2012 Red Ribbon Award Competition, and you can print a copy of the application. Deadline for applications is December 3, 2012.
