The week before prom, Effingham County High School junior class officers began promoting safe prom by taking cards to local florists and tuxedo rental shops with a poem, “The decisions you make on prom night can change your life. So party responsibly and take care of yourself and your friends.” Flyers with the same message were printed and distributed on students’ cars the night of prom.

Shops participating were Gregory’s Florist, JoAnne’s Florist, Ever After Bridal store, New Life Florist and Curiosity Shop.

Students also participated in a ghost-out, where a student is pulled out of class, has their face painted and returns to class but cannot talk for the remainder of the day, representing what it would be like if that person were no longer living.
