The Prom Challenge is a part of Michelle Obama’s When We All Vote campaign, a nonprofit centered around increasing voter participation and closing the race and age voting gap by changing the culture around voting. The former First Lady serves as co-chair alongside Janelle Monáe, Chris Paul, Shonda Rhimes, Kerry Washington, and Tracee Ellis Ross.

When We All Vote also shared how joining the challenge could win a high school up to $5,000 in a caption on their Instagram.
