A prom dream come true

In "13 Going on 30," Jennifer Garner, center, plays a teen whose dream of being all grown-up comes true. In a tie-in to the film, Macy's is holding a contest to make one lucky teen's prom dream come true.

Macy's Hawaii and Columbia Pictures have partnered to give a lucky teen the star treatment for prom season.

In conjunction with the new Jennifer Garner movie "13 Going on 30," in which an average teen is transformed into a grown-up fashion queen -- think of Tom Hanks' "Big" remade for the opposite sex -- girls can enter to win a dress ($200 value), makeover, "13 Going on 30" goodie pack and passes to see the new movie.

Enter in the junior wardrobe department at Macy's Ala Moana, Pearlridge, Kahala, Windward or Kailua locations through April 26.
