Several Green Country students suspended after poking classmates with a diabetic testing kit will present a seminar on the dangers of mishandling medical devices.

Five Pawhuska high school students were suspended last week because of a prank. Officials say they poked themselves and 14 other students with a needle-like device called a lancet. It's used to draw blood for testing sugar in diabetics. All of the victims were tested for HIV.

Officials say the five students will present a special seminar to the 80-students in the ninth grade.
