The annual door decorating contest for Red Ribbon Week returned to Duncan Middle School at the start of the week.

The contest started Monday and is wrapping up today with each WIN participating in the contest. The different groups are competing for a change of a pizza party for their class.

WIN classes were set to complete their doors by today with the winners being announced sometime Monday. The decorating project is part of Red Ribbon Week at Duncan Middle School. The door has to incorporate the Red Ribbon Week 2020 theme, which is “Be Happy. Be Brave. Be Drug Free.”

Red Ribbon Week is the drug, alcohol and tobacco prevention week. At Duncan Middle School, Red Ribbon Week is a shared focus of National Junior Honor Society and Student Council.

Renee Lawler, STEM teacher, had students in her WIN class working on the door decorating project. Lawler’s students decided on what the door design should be, when she decided her WIN class should participate.

She said she thought the project would be fun and creative for the students.

“I think I will win the contest,” Lawler said.

Several WIN classes across Duncan Middle School are competing in the contest. Winners will be announced Monday with judges determining which WIN class came up with the best design for the door.
