Wow!...Times Have Changed!Prom Photo Contest WINNER ANNOUNCED!Congratulations to Jennifer R of Portland! She’s been voted the grooviest prom photo. As winner, she receives $500 cash and a $10 music download card. Click here to hear the announcement on 93.1 with Tim and Eva!
Why? To celebrate the fact that underage drinking rates in Portland have been declining since 1995, 21 Reasons sponsored a Prom Photo Contest! Since underage drinking can harm the developing brain (which actually stops developing at the ripe old age of 25!), this decline in drinking rates is cause for celebration!
We are making underage drinking a thing of the past…just like those tacky prom dresses. Learn how on our Parent Resource page.
Underage drinking is becominga thing of the past!
A recent report from the Maine Office of Substance Abuse states that most of today's youth do not drink.
In addition, a 2008 parent phone survey by 21 Reasons in Portland found that more parents are taking concrete steps to keep their children from drinking.
