Green Ribbon Week
Graffiti Prevention and Anaheim Beautification

Green Ribbon Week November 9- 13, 2009  is aimed at raising awareness among Anaheim youth in regards to graffiti prevention and the preservation and beautification of Anaheim.

Anaheim Beautiful, The Anaheim Police Department, Anaheim Code Enforcement, The Magnolia School District, and The Anaheim City School District, have collaborated to drive this year's efforts in educating and maintaining awareness among Anaheim youth. Our hope is that preventive education and training will assist in reducing future graffiti, vandalism and littering in our communities and promote the preservation and beautification of our city.

The events leading up to the November Green Ribbon Week began in October with:

    • Assemblies at 20 Anaheim City Elementary Schools and Magnolia Schools presented by The Anaheim Police Departments, Gang Reduction and Intervention Partnership (G.R.I.P.), topic “Graffiti and the Consequences of Tagging.”  
    • Poster Contest (open to all (K-3) students) hosted by Anaheim Beautiful and judged by Anaheim City Officials.
    • Essay Contest (open to all (4-6) students) hosted by Anaheim Beautiful and judged by Anaheim City Officials.
    • Winners will be selected from each participating elementary school.  A first place winner will be chosen from each grade level.
    • All first place winners will be judged in the district-wide competition.
