graduation cake 300HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (2/13/13) – Project Graduation is in its 25th year of celebration! Project Graduation is an all-night drug/alcohol-free party honoring the graduates from CCHS, HCA, HHS and UHA.
This year’s celebration will be held on the night of Christian County/Hopkinsville High Schools’ graduation at the James E. Bruce Convention Center. The graduation date will be decided at the March School Board Meeting.

The event originated in 1988, as parents sought to be proactive to keep their graduates safe on night of graduation. Project graduation will entail the following: A safe, secure, alcohol and drug free environment for all graduates, “Cow Pasture Bingo” tickets sales by students, Project Graduation discount card sales (discounts on select businesses in Christian Co.) food, games, drawings for cash prizes, and much more!
Seniors will play games at the event in order to win “play” money to use when items are auctioned off that night. The majority of a graduate’s “play money” will come the number of “Cow Pasture Bingo” tickets and Project Graduation discount cards sold.
Auction and drawing items include: Scholarships, TVs, stereos, CD players, dorm refrigerators, DVD players, computers and many others. Items are donated from area merchants. Each student will be given a Project Graduation shirt and will be allowed to bring one guest.
The event could not be possible without the support of parents and community members. Donations are solicited each year, making possible this great event. The event is chaperoned by parents, therefore parents are encouraged to attend regular planning meetings that are held prior to the event. Scheduled meetings are: February 18, March 11, March 25, April 8, April 2, May 6 and May 20. All meetings are held at the Christian County High School Library at 6:00 p.m. Any parent that wishes to attend Project Graduation MUST attend at least two meetings.
To buy a “Cow Pasture Bingo” ticket or a Project Graduation discount card, contact any senior from one of the four high schools. To make a donation, please mail your check to:
