This Year’s Hottest Prom Dresses Are Handmade And Come With The Chance To Win $50,000 In The ‘Own Your Look, Own Your Future’ Prom Contest

Prom – it’s one of the most-anticipated events of high school and Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores is ready to add to this year’s excitement. Once again, teens have the chance to ‘ Own Your Look, Own Your Future,’ in this contest that encourages students to make a prom outfit for the opportunity to win $50,000 cash. What could make a better ending to an already awesome evening?

From deciding who could be the perfect date and styling hair just right, to finding a sweet pair of shoes and shimmering makeup, it’s all in the details this year. And, of course, the dress! Inspiration is all around - starting with the celebrities at this season’s red carpet events and featured in the pages of the must-read fashion magazines. Students can take these ideas and head to Jo-Ann for all the tips, tools and materials to turn them into dream dresses.
