For You Like-Proms
Prom is a great time to dress up, go out with friends, and celebrate high school. Many people say the negative side is that prom night takes attention away from studies and encourages superficial competition between peers at an age when self-esteem is fragile. It can also be the most memorable night of a student's life.
In the United States prom is a formal dance or gathering of high school students. It is typically held near the end of the senior year. It figures greatly in popular culture and is a major event among high school students. High school juniors attending the prom may call it "junior prom" while high school seniors may call it "senior prom".
At senior prom, a Prom Queen and Prom King may be revealed. These are honorary titles awarded to students chosen in a school-wide vote prior to the prom. Juniors may also be honored, but would be called "Prom Prince" or "Prom Princess".
