Brooks Unveils 2013 Monroe County Prom Safety Campaign
Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks launched the County’s 2013 Prom Safety Campaign to help local young people make the right choices about alcohol and other drugs on prom night. Brooks unveiled a new brochure for parents and students offering safety tips, facts regarding teen drinking, and other helpful information about making prom a positive and memorable experience.
“This time of year, local young people aren’t only making decisions about dresses, tuxedos, and limousines - they will also be making important choices on prom night that could affect the rest of their lives,” said Brooks. “By communicating openly about the many dangerous risks and positive opportunities presented on prom night, parents and students alike can do their part to make this prom season a safe one in Monroe County.”
The “Monroe County Guide to Prom Safety” was created as a tool to help promote open dialogue between parents and their children about staying safe on prom night. In addition to providing helpful preventative information, the guide also includes a sample “Prom Pledge” that parents and students can sign together.
The guide has been made available at high schools and libraries across Monroe County and also on the County’s website at http://www.monroecounty.gov.
