    Why: In recent years, high school students have found new and inventive ways to ask dates to the prom and posting these “prom-posals” on social media.

  • will reward the most creative NCHS proposals—one for Junior Prom, one for Senior Prom—with a $50 gift certificate that’s good at dozens of New Canaan businesses.
  • How: Entries can be submitted to — a photo or video with a short blurb about the proposal, including the names and emails (for confirmation) of the asker and “askee.” A panel convened by the New Canaanite editors will judge the best entries based on creativity, humor and originality.
  • When: Junior Prom entries are due at 5 p.m. on Friday, April 29. Senior Prom entries are due at 5 p.m. on Friday, May 13.

    No vulgar, dangerous or otherwise inappropriate entries will be considered.

  • You must use your real name when submitting as well as the intended date’s name, with a valid email for each so that we can confirm both parties want to enter.
  • File format for photos must be jpeg or png.
  • If a video file is too big to email, you can DropBox it.
  • Once the photo is submitted, you are granting us the right to publish it.
  • Participants cannot do anything that disrupts the educational environment or violates school policy or the law, on school grounds or anywhere else.

Good luck!
