On March 31st, National Prom Day honors friendship, cherished memories and celebrates the history, joy, and excitement this milestone event brings.

The day celebrates this special time in every teen’s life. It is a time filled with fashion, friendship and fun. But at times safety, peer pressure, and insecurity go along with it. too. That is why building a community that encourages confidence, empowerment, individuality and inner beauty is so important. It is also why we celebrate young adults all around the world.

In 2016, the celebration proudly supported Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD). The organization shares common values and is a long-standing champion in educating young people. While SADD’s core focus remains on traffic safety, it has expanded its mission to include substance abuse, suicide, depression, bullying, violence, body image and more.

Another focus of the event is supporting youth in need. That’s why the observance also promotes the giving program Garden of Dreams.

HOW TO OBSERVE #NationalPromDay

The day encourages all generations to share prom photos. Bring out photos from year’s past and share them on social media. Use the hashtag #NationalPromDay with the tag @promgirlxo and @promguytux. Let’s re-live history by sharing some of the most treasured memories in each of our lives and embrace this special occasion that continues to hold so much tradition. If prom photos are not available, we encourage sharing any image that celebrates confidence and tagging friends who have empowered with confidence.


PromGirl founded National Prom Day in 2016 to celebrate generations of proms gone by, the fashion, fun, and friendship and to look forward to the proms ahead of us. For more information visit nationalpromday.org.

In the first year, the observance recognized the efforts of SADD with a donation for every promgirl.com and promguy.com sale on March 31st. During the following years, their efforts continued with the promotion of the giving program Garden of Dreams
