After Prom Grand Finale is all about encouraging teens to stay until the end of their school’s after-prom party!

The “Stay Until the End” award will be given to the school which has the highest percentage of students who stay until the end of their after-prom party. Because we are using percentages, every participating school is eligible to win!

  • The winning school will receive a plaque and $100 to be used for next year’s after-prom party.
  • In order to qualify for this award, school representatives must submit both the number of students who attended their school’s after-prom party and the number of students who stayed until the end.
  • Representatives will enter this information on the same online form where they will enter the names of their school’s Qualifiers and Alternates.

The “Stay Until the End” award will be announced during the After Prom Grand Finale event.
