Project Homecoming & Project Prom are successful UthMpact initiatives that provide formal wear and accessories to hundreds of deserving high school students each year while educating youth and parents in our community about the risky behaviors that may occur during Homecoming, Prom and Graduation seasons. Students with a Polk County School ID can sign a Pledge to celebrate safely and drug-free and receive their dresses, suits, and accessories for FREE!

At the end of October, participants will have an opportunity to register their accomplishments and earn a chance to win special prizes. More info about the new Red Ribbon Challenge will be announced soon!
