Dozens of elementary students in Scott County enjoyed a celebration they've earned.

The Scott County Sheriff's Office held a graduation ceremony and cookout for students who completed the DARE program.

The students performed their version of the pop song Starships, re-written using DARE lyrics.  They also enjoyed a little fun entertainment from a professional magician.

The DARE program is aimed at teaching children to make good choices, and avoid drugs and alcohol.

"Some of them don't have the parents or the role models around to teach them, so we make sure someone teaches them how to make proper choices and to hopefully have a better life," said Officer Derek Sexton, the DARE Program Supervisor for the Scott County Sheriff's Office.

350 fifth graders from schools across Scott County completed this year's program.
