Red Ribbon week is one of the biggest drug prevention weeks in the nation.

A group of members from the Dallas County Court Systems went to Payne Elementary to hand out coloring books and candy on Friday morning in support of Red Ribbon week.

After giving the candy and coloring books each class said, “Drug-free is the way to be.”

This is not the only thing the group did to help spread the word about being drug-free.

The schools in Dallas County have done something different each day the past week to help promote being drug-free. At R.B Hudson on Monday they held a pep rally and wore red.

Tuesday they wore sparkling clothes. On Wednesday they wore pink and shades. Thursday they wore a shirt and Lei and Friday they wore all black. Each school did different things but everything done was in the name of promoting being drug-free. This is the 34th year of national red ribbon week.

The first red ribbon week was in 1988.
