Decorah High School hosted the 2024 Prom, which included the Grand March, dance, and Post Prom, on Saturday, April 13, and proceeds from the festivities went to the Humane Society of Northeast Iowa.

Approximately 238 students participated in the Grand March, which was held in the high school gym. Revenue from the spectators amounted to $993 and will be donated to the Humane Society of Northeast Iowa (HSNEI). Every year the participants select the charity receiving the money collected at the door.

The dance was also at the gym, followed by Post Prom which was held at the Community Building on the Winneshiek County Fairgrounds. Attendance was estimated at 175 for the event, which included a magic show, black light dodgeball, karaoke, nine-square, laser tag, caricature drawings, and many other activities. Event organizers said students received prizes throughout the evening valued at over $4,000, generously contributed by over 100 community donors and sourced locally or donated.

Associate Principal/Activities Director Adam Riley shared, “The students and staff of Decorah High School would like to express our sincere gratitude to those who supported Prom and Post Prom through their donations and volunteer help. Those who fully participated in the festivities had a great time creating memories in a safe and welcoming environment. This couldn’t happen without great community support.”
