The Prom Princess contest has returned.
The contest is a collaborative effort between the Victoria Advocate and community business partners.
Last year's Prom Princess contest winner was Cuero High School graduate Jennifer Zinke.
Readers are encouraged to submit essays nominating high school girls to win a prom dress and shoes, hair and makeup, spray tanning, transportation, a corsage and jewelry for their big night.
"I was able to experience my senior prom in a way most people don't get to," Zinke said. "I was pampered and given the five-star treatment."
To qualify, nominees must be eligible to attend their high school prom.
Each essay must be no more than 300 words detailing why the nominee deserves to be Prom Princess and what the honor would mean to her.
Eligible students are allowed to nominate themselves.
All entries are due Feb. 14 and must be mailed to Advocate Prom Princess, 311 E. Constitution St., Victoria, TX 77904, or may also be submitted through the Prom Princess entry website.
"I'm not usually a girlie person, so it was nice to get to experience everything," Zinke said. "It's something I'll remember for a lifetime."
