We’ve been blown away in past years by the amazingly over-the-top productions students create to ask their dates to one of the most memorable events of high school—prom, said Whataburger Vice President of Communications Pam Cox.

Over the years, Whataburger has seen fans ask their dates to school dances like prom by pulling out all the stops with Whataburger-themed “promposals.” This year the company is treating its biggest high school fans to a prom experience to remember.

One winner and his or her date will receive a special prom package for themselves and 10 friends including limo rental, orange corsages and boutonnieres, a professional photographer and a linen tablecloth dinner at Whataburger.

Here’s how the contest works:

  • Fans in grades nine through 12 take a picture or video of their “promposal”
  • Then post their picture on our Facebook wall or tag a picture or video on Twitter and/or Instagram with the hashtag #WhataProm
  • Fans with the most creative “promposal” will have a shot at winning the ultimate Whataburger prom experience

“We’ve been blown away in past years by the amazingly over-the-top productions students create to ask their dates to one of the most memorable events of high school—prom,” said Whataburger Vice President of Communications Pam Cox. “We can’t wait to see what our fans bring to the table this year, and we’re ready to treat them to an experience they won’t forget.”

The contest closes at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, April 11, 2016, and the winner will be announced later that week. The winner will be contacted individually and announced on Whataburger’s Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat accounts. For more information about the contest and official rules, visit here.

About Whataburger:
Whataburger has focused on its fresh, made-to-order burgers and friendly customer service since 1950 when Harmon Dobson opened the first Whataburger as a small roadside burger stand in Corpus Christi, Texas. Dobson gave his restaurant a name he hoped to hear customers say every time they took a bite of his made-to-order burgers: “What a burger!” Within the first week, people lined up around the block for his 25 cent, 100 percent beef burgers served on five-inch buns. Today, the company is headquartered in San Antonio, Texas, with more than 790 locations in 10 states with sales of more than $2 billion annually.
