More than 2,000 high school students from Portage County gathered at Hiram College yesterday for the annual “None 4 Under 21″ event, sponsored by the Portage County Highway Patrol.

The event is held before prom season every year to raise awareness about the dangers of drinking and driving.

Along with listening to speakers talking about personal experiences, the high school students also watched as police, firemen and other volunteers orchestrated a mock accident and funeral.

Students saw the mock disaster as they entered the Les & Kathy Coleman Center for the 2013 None 4 Under 21 event.
