Significance of Red Ribbon Campaign

The Red Ribbon Campaign began in 1985

as a combined result of outrage and frustration
at the brutal torture and murder of

Federal Drug Enforcement Administration Agent Enrique Camarena
by drug traffickers in Mexico.


The Red Ribbon symbolizes a commitment to a healthy drug-free life-style. As the Red Ribbon Campaign has grown from year to year, we are proud to continue to raise much needed awareness and funds to support drug education, anti-bullying efforts, and youth leadership development in Polk, Highlands, and Hardee counties.


We encourage you to participate in this year’s
Red Ribbon activities in October
and to make drug use prevention part of

your family’s healthy life-style.

• Wear a Red Ribbon all month.
