WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (NOVEMBER 2, 2018) —  A weeklong campaign on drug awareness and prevention ended today with the third annual Dodge Drugs Dodgeball event, a culminating activity that brought Red Ribbon Week to a close at Williamsport Area Middle School.

Led by the Health and Physical Education department, the event invites city police and fire officials, as well as representatives of the YWCA Northcentral PA to the school to participate in a dodgeball tournament throughout the day.  The tournament functions in a way to allow emergency officials to interact with students while also providing a platform for students to announce anti-drug messages learned throughout the week. 

Red Ribbon Week is celebrated each year, serving "as a catalyst to mobilize communities to educate youth and encourage participation in drug prevention activities."
