Students plan "prom draft"

By Corinne Hautala. CREATED May 8, 2014

NEWPORT BEACH, CA - A group of boys at a Newport Beach school have started a “prom draft.”

Male students purchase draft tickets and female students are then “drafted” as dates for the prom.

Parents of juniors and seniors received a letter from the school’s principal notifying them of the “rumor” of a “prom draft,” similar to a NFL draft.

School officials are concerned about female students being “objectified,” but as of now the draft which is scheduled for June is a go.
