The “Rock the Ribbon” contest is all about getting creative and making yourself an AIDS Awareness ribbon. You can make a wearable ribbon out of red felt, string, yarn, beads, a scarf, etc. Or make a non-wearable ribbon, such as a cookie, a painting of a ribbon or use Twizzlers to make a ribbon. Take a picture of yourself rocking your ribbon or of the ribbon you made and upload it to our Facebook post: https://www.facebook.com/know.your.status1
