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.

“Whether your style is short and sassy or long and elegant, we have all the materials you need to make your fabulous prom garment, as well as the experts to help you along the way,” explained Michelle Christensen, vice president, general merchandise manager, at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores. “Creating a prom outfit is such a great opportunity to show your creativity and talent. We’re excited to offer students the chance to win $50,000 for expressing and sharing that creativity.”

The contest is open to students ages 14-19 through June 15, 2011. Information and rules can be found at Facebook.com/Joann, Joann.com/prom, and in any Jo-Ann store. The contest is void in Maryland and Vermont due to state regulations.
