With the 2008 prom season just around the corner, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company (Nationwide), ask students to pledge to be alcohol and drug free during prom and year round. THINK.Prom, part of the THINK. year-round, alcohol-use prevention program launched by MADD and Nationwide in 2006 empowers students to pledge to be alcohol and drug free all year in schools across the country.
"Underage drinking is a prelude to drunk driving," said Glynn Birch MADD national president. "Research shows that the earlier youth drink, the more likely they are to be alcohol dependent and drive drunk. Students who sign the THINK.Prom pledge show their commitment to staying healthy and alcohol free."
