Wednesday, April 8, 2009 11:51 PM EDT | By Scotty Gore

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Want to go to prom, but can’t afford a dress? Then “One Life to Live” may be able to help.

For many high school students, prom is the most magical time of the year. That will certainly be the case at Llanview High next month when The Pussycat Dolls perform “Jai Ho (You are My Destiny),” the English version of the popular song from the Oscar-winning film “Slumdog Millionaires.” But the fun doesn’t end there. “One Life to Live” is teaming up with the website DonateMyDress.org to sponsor the Dream Dress Contest, giving twenty-eight lucky teen girls a prom night to remember.

With the nation in the grips of an economic downturn, increasing numbers of teens will either dress down for their high school prom this year, or simply skip the event altogether. However, “One Life to Live” wants to make a difference by giving away twenty-seven beautiful gowns to be worn in the show’s upcoming Llanview High prom episode on May 13th, plus Kristen Alderson’s (Starr) very own prom dress. The gowns, varying in styles and colors, will be worn by Alderson and castmates Brittany Underwood (Langston), Camila Banus (Lola), Dana Sipovich (Becca) and Shenell Edmonds (Destiy), along with several extras. Total value of the dresses is $5,600.


To be eligible, applicants must describe in three hundred words or less why they feel they deserve one of the prom dresses. Only those teenage girls who are whose family is in a tough financial predicament and unable to afford a dress, are encouraged to apply. All entries will be verified by contacting the teachers of the girls who sign-up. The gowns range in size from 0 to 8. And those who are not selected to receive one of the dresses worn on “OLTL,” are urged to contact their local DonateMyDress chapter, for help in finding a prom dress. Interested parties can enter the contest and read the official rules by clicking here. But hurry, the deadline is midnight edt on April 24th, 2009. Best of luck!

“One Life to Live” airs Weekdays on ABC. Weeknights on SOAPnet. Check local listings.
