The Princeton Prize in Race Relations

The Princeton Prize in Race Relations recognizes and rewards high school students who have had a significant positive effect on race relations in their schools or communities through their volunteer efforts.

Prize recipients receive a cash prize of $1,000 and an all-expenses-paid weekend to a Symposium on Race at Princeton University where they will meet and engage with other Prize recipients from across the country.

Prize recipients are recognized at ceremonies in their local regions by Princeton alumni.

PPRR operates through 27 Regional Committees and has an At-Large Regional Committee to support areas where we currently have no geographic presence. We are an alumni volunteer-run organization, enlisting the support of over 450 Princetonians, all dedicated to an inclusive and supporting society.

Applications are now open: https://princetonprize.smapply.io/prog/princeton_prize_in_race_relations/

Halloween Costume Guidelines

Halloween Costume Guidelines
Wednesday, October 31st, 2018

All costumes must be school appropriate! Please use good judgement!
Although dressing up for Halloween is fun, education is the first priority at Sweetwater High School. Therefore, costumes must not inhibit the ability of a student to participate fully in classes. Students must be able to sit, walk, breathe, see and hear in their costumes.

Please also note the following rules regarding costumes:
• NO revealing costumes…i.e. crop tops, short bottoms, etc. (All school dress code guidelines will apply)
• NO costumes that may offend others due to race, culture, gender, religion, or sexual orientation
• NO toy weapons or objects/elements that represent violence (knives, swords, guns, etc.)
• NO masks
If ANY costume is deemed inappropriate by a member of the administrative team, the student will be required to change. If alternate clothing is not available, the student will be asked to wear loaner clothing, or call a parent/guardian for a change of clothes. If you are unsure if your costume is school appropriate, please contact one of the administrators.
