While Kristen was missing, her family, friends, fellow students, teachers and others at Holy Cross Secondary School chose the Green Ribbon of H0pe as the symbol for their search. The school community gave the name to the Green Ribbon of Hope Campaign, which is a national campaign which is today operated by Child Find Canada, and other organizations to raise both awareness for missing children, and to raise funds for searches.

The Green Ribbon Trail in St. Catharines was named in Kristen French's honour. A monument to Kristen's memory stands at the beginning of the trail.
