Prom and graduation are important events in the lives of graduating high school seniors. Anne Arundel County Public Schools and the Anne Arundel County Department of Health encourage youth to participate in senior events that are safe and alcohol free. Parents are encouraged to speak to their graduating seniors concerning the dangers of underage drinking, including the health, family and legal consequences of use.
Seniors will recieve a brochure explaining the Play It Safe Project, a nationally recognized drug and alcohol abuse prevention program developed for graduates who celebrate the end of high school in Ocean City, MD. This project includes public awareness, education and alternative activities. Some of the alcohol-free events being held in Ocean City during senior week include laser tag, 3-on-3 basketball tournaments, midnight bowling, volleyball tournaments, miniature golf and kaaoke.
