WHY DO WE HAVE AN AFTER PROM?   Did you know that according to the U.S. Dept. of Transportation, on a typical prom weekend: 48 American teenagers are killed in vehicles,  5,202 are injured, and 40% of the deaths are alcohol-related?

• Statistics show that Prom-Graduation season - the months of April, May and June - is the most dangerous time for teens. One-third of the alcohol-related traffic fatalities involving teens each year occur during those months.

• According to MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) on the weekends in May 2000, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, FARS data reported that there were 246 total traffic fatalities.

• From the Prom/Graduation Weekend Alcohol-Related Fatalities 2000 report, 136 of the motor vehicle traffic fatalities (55.2%) were alcohol related.

With the help of the community and one another, parents can take a stand against the negative persuasion and fight the devastating statistics as reported by the NHTSA.  Designed to insure the safety and well-being of high school teenagers, After Prom parties are a sure bet for free food, fun and entertainment and prizes for the students.  Prom night is supposed to be a wonderful time – let’s make it our mission to keep our teenagers safe and off the streets.  To learn more about Amelia High School’s 2017 After Prom, check out the following link:  https://www.gofundme.com/xzh2ncr6?viewupdates=1&rcid=fd3e94bbebf243db8143a61480f4845a&utm_source=internal&utm_medium=email&utm_content=body_photo&utm_campaign=upd_n
