This year’s post-prom planning is in full swing, and festivities are scheduled for Friday, May 11, right after the dance. Our first priority is to make sure that students stay safe and make wonderful memories of their time at GW, and we would appreciate help as we work to make After Prom a success.
Are you in a position to supply your skills/goods at After Prom from 11:00pm until 2:00am? We’re looking for people who specialize in coffee carts, embroidery, caricatures, henna art, crafting, ceramics, and any other activities or services our students would enjoy. We also appreciate prize donations for the raffle, like gift cards and college dorm supplies. If you can’t donate a prize, we’re always grateful for the financial donations that keep After Prom free for all students – any amount helps! To learn more about how you can contribute to this GW tradition, email Ali Foster (email@example.com). Thank you!

Powwows are a strong pillar of Native American culture and a way to keep traditions going as well as honor the resiliency of Indigenous peoples. This powwow is to provide their community of Denver, DPS members, teachers, family, and friends an opportunity to learn more about their different tribal cultures, learn about different college/career opportunities for Native students, share their art, and come together around a community feed.
