National Monument in Colorado Defaced for Promposals

promposals take toll on national monuments in Colorado

It's prom season in the U.S., which means it's also the season for awkward, sweaty, overly-hormonal teenagers to try and impress their peers and find a date for prom. 

These days, "Promposals" are the (usually innocent, if not dramatic), ways for teens to get their date's attention and entice them to go with them to prom. But, one Colorado teen's attempt to impress his would-be prom date has officials there calling his declarations of love, graffiti.

The unnamed high school student allegedly spray-painted the word, "Prom...ise?" as well as several other declarations of love on the Colorado National Monument, an offense, officials say, that's punishable by up to six months in prison and a $500 fine. 

Unfortunately, there is graffiti in Colorado National Monument. If anyone has any information about seeing anyone doing graffiti in the monument, please contact the visitor center at 970-858-3617 ext. 360. Thank you.


"Promposals" have become increasingly popular for teens who want to ask their date to prom in a creative, or viral type of manner. Some promposals work. Witness Vine star Cole LaBrant's music video he put together to try and get Selena Gomez to go to prom with him (it didn't work). One Miley Cyrus superfan attempted to get his favorite pop star to join him at his prom with an epic video. That one didn't work either, but, Miley was gracious enough to invite her superfan to her show in Arizona where they took 'Prom' photos and shared an on-stage duet. 

Officials with the Colorado National Monument are asking for the public's help in locating the star-crossed lover, who is responsible for vandalizing the monument.
