Prom night often finds teens pressured to engage in underage drinking, illegal drug use, unprotected sex, or more. This video turns its lens on a wide range of real teens and their prom experiences—from the most positive moments to events gone horribly wrong. Sends a straightforward message of planning, communicating with parents, setting personal limits, and establishing a “safety net” plan before the prom. Law enforcement and medical emergency workers weigh in on prom night hazards and their consequences. This sharp, honest look at the risks and rewards of prom night helps make students and parents “prom ready” by knowing the facts, the problems, and strategies for a safe and fun prom.
