LAPTA has wonderful and fun contests for Local PTA Units. Kiki's Red Ribbon Poster Contest emphasizes drug prevention. The Reflections Theme Search for 2025-26 needs students to submit original theme ideas. The Reflections Program has all details at LouisianaPTA.org/reflections.
The Louisiana Seymore D’Fair Foundation celebrates their Kiki Red Ribbon Week School Celebration 2023 with the theme “I’m Better Drug-Free.” For this contest students create a drawing on regular 8½ X 11 white paper that illustrates the “I’m Better Drug-Free” theme. Local PTA Units can pick three winners per Grade Category: Primary (Pre-K - Grade 2), Intermediate (Grades 3-6) and Special Artist Category (students of all ages with an ADA Section 504).
