RED RIBBON WEEK

The Taney County Prosecuting Attorney’s office is pleased to be a sponsor of red ribbon week for local 5th and 6th grades in area schools.  Since 2007 the Taney County Prosecutor’s Office has sponsored a t-shirt poster contest for area students in an effort to raise drug awareness amongst students. Red Ribbon week is the oldest and largest drug prevention program in the United States. It is a program designed to teach our youth drug awareness and a drug free lifestyle.
