May 30 | Prom Goes #VTstrong

May 18, 2020

VPR is teaming up with the Agency of Education and Big Heavy World to present Prom Goes #VTstrong. Burlington DJ Craig Mitchell hosts this statewide radio prom on Saturday, May 30 at 7 p.m.

Prom from home doesn’t mean you’ll be on your own. Join your classmates and students around the state to celebrate one of high school’s biggest moments! Listen together and join us online to share memories and party into the night.  

We want YOU to be part of the event! Want to send a shout-out to someone? Record a message to have DJ Craig play during the broadcast? Share photos and videos from your favorite high school moments and memories? Share it all here! Submission deadline is Friday, May 29.

Here’s how it all works: starting at 7 p.m., radio prom begins and you can listen to VPR for the broadcast or join us on MixCloud. At 8 p.m., the broadcast stops but the party keeps going online! Join DJ Craig for more music, memories and appearances from notable Vermonters!

Prom Goes #VTstrong is sponsored by VSAC.
