Say Yes to the Prom is back and headed to the Big Apple!

One hundred deserving students from New York City's very own Inwood Academy for Leadership Charter School will be treated to an all-expenses paid prom, courtesy of TLC in partnership with Seventeen Magazine. Additionally, the students will be treated to a full shopping day alongside Monte Durham of TLC's Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta where they will receive free prom dresses/formal wear, accessories and more!

Cameras were on hand at yesterday's surprise announcement to document the students' excitement for a special that will air on TLC in the spring of 2018.

TLC's Say Yes to the Prom contest ran through fall 2017 and accepted applications from high school students across the United States. To enter, students were required to describe why their school deserved to win a dream prom in 250 words or less. Inwood Academy supports education as a key to breaking the cycle of poverty, illiteracy and low expectations in the Inwood and Washington Heights areas and will be celebrating its first graduating class in spring 2018, and thus the school's first-ever prom.
