It’s prom season so we’re doing something special and making two students’ proms one to remember. To help local high school students celebrate their prom, we are teaming up with some amazing local Hoboken and Jersey City businesses for a special prom giveaway for not one, but two lucky Hudson County students. The pandemic has affected students’ ability to have in-person proms, and now that it’s once again an option, we want to help two deserving students reach their prom goals!
From prom outfit alterations to glam sessions, we’re giving away a prize pack of pampering and prom prep to each student to help create an unforgettable prom experience this spring. The Hoboken Girl will also be donating a percentage of the sponsorship fees to Dress for Success Hudson County , which helps local residents with interview attire and getting back into the workforce.

Our ultimate prom giveaway will take place virtually on Tuesday, April 19th through 11:59PM, Sunday, May 1st on Instagram @TheHobokenGirl . The two Hudson County high school winners will be announced via our IG stories on Wednesday, May 4th.
