Winston-Salem, NC (March 20, 2013) – The Winston-Salem, NC based nonprofit, Safe Sober Prom Night, is pleased to announce that Brandon Archer, a Career Center High School senior, has won the Safe Sober Prom Night T-Shirt Design Contest for 2013.
Safe Sober Prom Night is a non-profit organization co-founded in 1991 by attorney David Daggett of Daggett Shuler, Attorneys at Law. The goal of Safe Sober Prom Night is to provide ongoing awareness of the dangers of drugs and alcohol and to encourage positive peer pressure to reduce underage drinking and drug use among young people. The program is currently active in the greater Triad region of North Carolina and impacts students in 40 high schools across eight counties.
Safe Sober Prom Night encourages high school students to be safe with a written pledge to stay drug and alcohol free on prom night. Each student who signs a pledge card receives a t-shirt bearing the winning design. Students are given incentives to keep their commitment, including scholarships and a chance to win $1,000 for their school. To date, more than 400,000 students have signed the Safe Sober pledge.
As part of the Safe Sober Prom Night program, Triad students submit their own designs for consideration to be printed on close 15,000 t-shirts distributed to area high school juniors and seniors. This year over 250 designs were submitted from area participating high schools. Brandon Archer is the sole winner of the competition. He received a $500 scholarship and has his name printed on the back of each t-shirt. Many schools incorporate these t-shirts into their spirit week leading up to prom, creating an atmosphere of positive peer pressure encouraging their students to make safe decisions on Prom night.
“We are so proud of all the students who take part in Safe Sober Prom Night, and this year, we are especially proud of Brandon. He has done an outstanding job designing a t-shirt that is not only eye-catching, but also conveys the simple message to his peers to remain Safe and Sober on prom night,” said David Daggett.
