Vote: Would You Go to Prom with a Random Date?

By Tonka Dobreva 03.21.2017 interact

One of the most exciting parts about prom is asking your crush — or, respectively, being asked by your crush — to a prom date. For some high schoolers, this is also the most challenging part. One Illinois high school is aiming to take this stress out of prom-planning by staging a random “prom draw.” Think of it as a secret Santa but for prom — boys pick a card at random, and the name on the card is the name of their prom date. They then have to come up with a creative way to ask the girl they picked to the prom.

We want to know what you think about this innovative alternative to traditional prom dates — would you go to prom with a random date? Vote and tell us your opinion in the comments section below. We will feature the results of the poll and some of your answers on the show!

    No cause he might not be like u u and him might be competley different

  2. Jaidan James

    NO because prom is a special night where you are supposed to have fun with your friends or you date and prom only happens so many times.

  3. Joseph Celentano

    I would love to do it because I think it is good to meet new people.

  4. Belle

    I wouldn’t want to do this because, what if you don’t like that person.

  5. Ava Ramirez

    I think doing this is not a good idea. I feel like it would make conflict

  6. Alex Schramm

    I would not want this program because part of the process of prom is being asked and going with someone doesn’t force them to hang out with them the whole time.
