AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -

Fifth-graders from across the state want the eyes of Texas to be on their mustaches.
    
The Texas Department of State Health Services says it expects more than 1,000 mustachioed fifth-graders for the Red Ribbon Rally Thursday at the state Capitol. The rally is to support anti-drug efforts.
    
The meaning of the mustache? It's a plea to peers: "I mustache you not to do drugs."
    
Afterward, the students will head to a legislative session of sorts in which they'll debate and vote on bills about substance abuse.
    
The bills will not be binding.
