Students at Peiffer Elementary School in Littleton, Colo., cheer as an OH-58 Kiowa helicopter from the Colorado National Guard lands in their schoolyard, marking the beginning of Red Ribbon Week, Oct. 13, 2008. The Colorado National Guard's Joint Counterdrug Task Force, in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Agency and Miss Colorado, is leading the charge to bring an anti-drug message to 65 schools across Colorado within a two-week period. The CO-JCDTF supports local, state and federal law enforcement agencies, community-based organizations and schools with a variety of services to help rid Colorado communities of the effects of drug abuse and associated social issues.

The National Family Partnership is the sponsor of the National Red Ribbon Week Celebration, and the Red Ribbon Campaign is now the oldest and largest drug prevention program in the nation.
