It's something every school age child faces at some time in their lives, pressure to do drugs.
But, children in Rapid City are taking a stand.
As part of the kickoff of Red Ribbon week, students from several Rapid City schools gathered to place a red ribbon around the neck of the brontosaurus atop Skyline Drive.
It symbolizes their effort to keep drug – free.
This is the eighteenth year a ribbon has been placed at Dinosaur Park.
Adolescent Substance Abuse Prevention (ASAP) President Pam Teaney Thomas says what makes this week special is how the students the students are taking a stand, "Red ribbon is where we teach our young people to take a stand, our community to take a stand I can remember one point where young people wouldn't stand up and be able to say I don't use drugs, I don't need them."
As part of red ribbon week, ASAP will also decorate Halley park and will host a parade in downtown Saturday.
