We've all watched David Tutera make even the craziest of brides' dreams come true on WEtv's "My Fair Wedding." From the venue and decor to the food and entertainment, the man seems to make miracles happen.

Now take Tutera's event planning genius and add racks full of designer gowns from Manhattan-based rental site Rent the Runway, plus fashion industry experts including Teen Vogue editor in chief Amy Astley.

What do you get? The prom of the century.

High schools in areas severely affected by superstorm Sandy, including Long Island, have the chance to enter to win their dream prom March 5-15 at renttherunway.com/winaprom

In addition to Tutera's help and complimentary dresses, the winning school will get tuxedos from Men's Wearhouse, beauty services from Lancome and DRYBAR and a surprise celebrity musical guest at their celebration.

To enter, students need to film a two-minute video or submit a 250 to 500 word statement explaining why their school is inspiring and unique.

A panel that consists of Astley, Tutera, Rent the Runway co-founders Jenn Hyman and Jenny Fleiss and fashion director Lucy Sykes Rellie will choose three finalists on March 25. Then, votes will be opened to the public. The winner will be announced April 1.
