Atlanta’s Mays High School Wins Prom Safety Contest Organized by Fulton County Youth Commissioners | Print |

 Benjamin E. Mays High School students will enjoy their 2016 prom at the fabulous Fox Theatre on May 6, 2016.   The Atlanta high school won the Prom Safety contest sponsored by Fulton County Youth Commissioners, V103, Capitol Records Music Group, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and A-Tow.  

Youth Commissioners decided that the Mays High School Prom Safety video presentation was the best safety video compared to six other competing schools. The winning video will be broadcast at Mays to encourage safety during prom season. All of the competing schools are encouraged to air their video submission at their school during prom season. The Mays High School Prom is for seniors only; however, seniors can bring a date from an outside school with a ticket purchase.

Students will enjoy a Celebrity performance by “Silento,” A V-103 DJ and High Definition Sound System and a live radio broadcast by V-103 at the prom with Celebrity Host “Greg Street” along with free transportation to and from the Prom and discount codes by Uber.  On the safety education issue, Prom goers will experience a video game drunk driving simulation by AAA, (American Automobile Association) and giveaways by Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD).

The prom safety campaign among Atlanta and Fulton County public/private high schools is designed to raise awareness of the need to avoid intoxicated and reckless driving, which has led to tragedy for students of some metro schools during prom season.

During the contest period, participating schools were asked to submit safety campaign presentations that featured the following themes:

  • Prevention of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Prevention of alcohol consumption
  • Prevention of drug usage
  • Prevention of texting while driving
  • Prevention of peer pressure and bullying
  • Prevention of violence/weapons
