As National Red Ribbon Week begins, the Governor’s Office on Youth, Faith and Family is renewing its focus on providing the best possible information on the choice for a healthy and drug free lifestyle for Arizona’s youth.
“Our ‘Be Seen Be Heard AZ’ campaign will draw attention to the dangers of drug use in our society and especially among our youth,” said Debbie Moak, director of the Governor’s Office on Youth, Faith and Family.
The office created, with help from Cox Communications and the Governor’s Youth Commission, five Public Service Announcements, (one for each day of Red Ribbon Week), to raise awareness about the risks involved with substance abuse.
“We want to get the message out that using drugs can destroy dreams and ruin lives,” Moak said. “Our goal is to use Red Ribbon Week as a tool to empower students to make healthy decisions when they are faced with difficult choices.”
In order to make this state wide initiative as effective and as easy to use as possible for all Arizona Middle and High Schools, we are providing a link which Schools can use to upload the PSA’s and play them for their students.
Below is the link you and schools can use to upload the Governor’s Office of Youth, Faith and Family, “Be Seen Be Heard AZ” PSA’s developed especially for Arizona’s student populations.
Access to the PSA’s will also be available to download and view at the Governor’s Youth Commission website; http://beseenbeheard.az.gov/
Please consider forwarding this link and information to all your middle and high school principals, and/or vice principals, guidance counselors, and school resource officers, so they can play them during Red Ribbon Week, October 26-30, 2015.
“Thank you for working as a partner with our office to promote the choice for a healthy and drug free lifestyle for Arizona’s youth,” Moak said.
