The winning high school receives a prize that includes a styling party for the students including dresses and tuxedos for all, with hair and makeup services from Drybar and Lancôme. The winner's venue will get decked out by My Fair Wedding's David Tutera and there will be a surprise celebrity guest performing. So, kids, get to clicking. [Racked Wire]
