Project Graduation

Project Graduation is a tradition that was created in Oxford Hills, Maine, in 1980. This tradition was created by the Oxford Hills community and the teachers from Oxford Hills in hopes of preventing underage drinking and partying on the night of graduation. Since 1980 this project has spread to many other states and just about all schools in Maine. Project Graduation provides graduates with an alternative to drinking and doing drugs on graduation night.
