For many high school students, prom is a very special and highly anticipated event. It’s the kind of day that you want to be memorable and while picking the perfect outfit is a big part of the excitement, no prom could have been successful without the team behind it.
Prom Committee is a student-led group that works together to plan and design prom. There are many responsibilities within the club, including decor, fundraising, and public relations. These jobs are further broken down into smaller tasks, ranging from making invitations to choosing food items for the menu.
Clearly, it’s a lot of work, but it’s also rewarding, because being part of Prom Committee gives students the opportunity to offer their ideas and work with their peers to create the prom of their dreams. Not only that, but it’s satisfying to see the culmination of all your hard work in one event that’s so important to so many other students as well.
While important, prom is not the only event planned by the committee. Currently, they are working on Winter Ball, and there is still time for students to join in on that planning opportunity. You can join at any time, and there’s no expectation for a full-year commitment, although you can gain a discount on your prom ticket, based on how much time and work you commit to the club. Current club members collectively agreed that they had gained skills in teamwork, decision-making, and event planning since they joined. It’s a fantastic way to be involved in your school community and celebrate all your hard work at the end of the school year!
