In order to be considered for the Star-Telegram.com Takes You to Prom contest, entrants had to write an essay of 350 words or less telling the selection committee why they should be awarded the prom of their dreams. Below is the essay written by Lauren Romero, a senior at Paschal High School. Her prom is on May 16th at Ridglea Country Club.
Ever since seeing my older sister go to three different proms, I would imagine what mine would be like.
I would imagine the perfect guy who would ask me, with me wearing the perfect dress, and getting a limo to take us to the prom.
My mom passed away when I was 11 andI haven't really been able to have that motherly figure here for me in my senior year.

My mom would be so excited.
I have a twin sister and would love for it to be, instead of taking a guy date to prom, that maybe I could take my sister. We are so close and I wouldn't want her to miss out.
