Fargo, ND (WDAY/WDAZ TV) - Some high school students are strutting their stuff while promoting social inclusion of all students.

Today at Davies High School a group of students called Project Unify hosted its third annual prom fashion show.

The group helps to promote good social relationships between students with and without disabilities.

30 kids walked the runway in donated dresses and tuxes.

Paige Leier/Davies High School Senior,  "It's a long process. It took us, I'd say about six months to plan. We start at the beginning of the year, you know, talk to administration. They have been super helpful with everything and then just kind of communicating with the special ed teachers and the dress shops and the food."

All of the proceeds from the show will go to the special needs wing at Davies.
