									Positive Promotions Announces Winning Schools for 2012 Red Ribbon Week

Each October, Positive Promotions supports the efforts of Red Ribbon Week by sponsoring an
annual contest to recognize schools and organizations that celebrate the week in creative ways.
Chosen from hundreds of outstanding contest entries, the company is proud to announce and
congratulate the winning schools of the 2012 Red Ribbon Week Contest.

Hauppauge, NY, April 04, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Each October, schools and communities across the nation
celebrate Red Ribbon Week to teach children about the harmful effects of drugs. Positive Promotions
supports Red Ribbon Week by sponsoring an annual contest to recognize the creative ways in which
schools and communities encourage their youth to live a healthy, drug free life. The company is pleased
to announce and congratulate the 2012 Red Ribbon Week contest winners.

This year, Positive Promotions received hundreds of outstanding Red Ribbon Week contest entries. From
those entries, 4 elementary schools and 4 middle schools were chosen as winners. The 1st through 3rd
place winners in both divisions received monetary awards ranging from $300 to $100, while 2 honorable
mentions received a $25 gift certificate for a future purchase from Positive Promotions.

The 1st place grand prize winner of $300 in the middle school division is Creekland Middle School in
Lawrenceville, Georgia. The school stood out for its wide variety of Red Ribbon Week activities.
Throughout the week, students participated in dress-up “theme days.” These themes, such as crazy sock
day, whose purpose was to “Sock It to Drugs,” or team jersey day, to “Team Up Against Drugs,”
provided fun ways for students to express their individuality and vow to live drug free. Other activities
included a door decorating contest to fit their theme, “Be All You Can Be ...Be Drug Free,” and drug
prevention lessons suitable for each grade level. Every student received a Positive Promotions
personalized ribbon with the Creekland Middle School mascot on it, and each teacher received a Positive
Promotions bookmark to display in their classroom to remind students all year to stay away from drugs.

In the middle school division, the 2nd place winner of $200 is Williams Valley School District of Tower
City, Pennsylvania. In 3rd place receiving a $100 prize is Morton Magnet Middle School of Omaha,
Nebraska. The honorable mention award goes to La Cima Middle School in Tucson, Arizona, for their
worthy contest entry.

In the elementary school division, the winner of the 1st place $300 grand prize is North Columbia
Elementary School in Appling, Georgia. The teachers, staff and students at North Columbia “knocked it
out of the park” with their Red Ribbon Week events. Activities throughout the week revolved around
their theme of “The Best Me is Drug Free.” Like many other schools, North Columbia used Positive
Promotions theme day stickers such as “Sock It to Drugs” to encourage students to participate by wearing
the featured slogan of the day. They took that one step further by inviting students to bring in an
unopened package of new socks to donate to the local Clothes Closet thrift store. Being drug free affects
the whole community, and North Columbia Elementary School incorporated the local area in this notably
charitable way. The school concluded their Red Ribbon Week with a community carnival, in which
