Congratulations, Meadowcreek High School!
Meadowcreek High School was among the 20 high schools announced as winners of the 2020 Prom Challenge and will be celebrated across MTV channels on Friday, May 22nd!
MTV and 'When We All Vote' is hosting a virtual prom event for the Class of 2020, as many proms and graduations have all been canceled due to COVID-19.
The campaign also focuses on another important milestone for young people this year: registering and voting in the national election in November.
Meadowcreek High School’s students and staff organized creative nonpartisan voter registration efforts on campus, including 'Woke Week' to celebrate registering to vote. 'When We All Vote' worked with librarian Cicely Lewis who helped 11th graders Myli Zelaya and Ashley Casasola on their voter registration efforts.
The students also had the 'Vote Woke Challenge' where students received prizes after sharing the importance of voting via social media, bringing a friend to register to vote, registering to vote, or agreeing to drive someone to the polls for voting.
During a private Zoom call, 'When We All Vote' Co-Chair Michelle Obama surprised the 20 student leaders from the 20 winning high schools. The former First Lady congratulated the students for efforts and impact on this year’s upcoming election.
Meadowcreek High School, GCAE is immensely proud of you! We hope you enjoy your prom!
