GOWANDA, N.Y. (WKBW) — It's a rite of passage for many teens in America. But, the COVID-19 pandemic is forcing many high school traditions to take a back-seat in the name of safety.

On Wednesday, the Gowanda Central School District posted a message to its Facebook page announcing that the 2020 prom and Senior Class Night have been canceled.

We know this won't make up for the lost memories, but 7 Eyewitness News wants to help you treasure these moments for the Class of 2020. Send us your senior photos, you, dressed in your prom gear, or a proud yard sign declaring you are a member of the class of 2020. We will be airing these photos in our newscasts and online at WKBW.com and on our Facebook page.
