The list of schools participating include Bayshore High, Braden River High, Lakewood Ranch High, Manatee High, Palmetto High, and Southeast High.

Due to Centers for Disease Control guidelines, spectators are unable to gather in groups on-campus to celebrate. The School district urges everyone to join via cars or from an off-campus location.

The School district has also invited everyone to join in and celebrate the seniors from home by turning on outside lighting during the designated time.
