Hurricane Sandy has postponed the deadline for Red Ribbon Week's national photo contest by one week.

Red Ribbon Week provides drug awareness through the wearing of red ribbons and has been a nationwide campaign since 1985.

As part of the weeklong event the sponsors of Red Ribbon Week announced a national photo contest which boasted the chance to win a $1,000 drug prevention grant for an individual's K-12 school or an iPad for their home.

The goal of the contest is to encourage families to talk about prevention at home and in their neighborhoods.

The original deadline for the contest was Nov. 2 but due to the recent weather events involving Hurricane Sandy the deadline has been postponed one week to Nov. 9. The online voting portion of the contest has also been pushed back one week to Nov. 2 thru Nov. 16.
