Since bribery is the best way to get the things you want, many teens entice their crushes and potential prom dates with sweet treats. It’s no marriage proposal, but like everything else in high school, it is a competition to see who can do it best and biggest.

Having taken notice of this phenomenon, this year, Dunkin’ Donuts is stepping in to arm teens with the ultimate weapon: a very special box with a very special portmanteau name. Indeed, Dunkin’s epic, blinged-out “promposal” box seems like a surefire way to get the target of your affections to say yes to your prom proposal—unless of course he or she doesn’t like doughnuts.

Five lucky people (15 years of age, or older) will win a box—decorated with lights and sparkles and joyous doughnut puns and, naturally, sweet, round doughnuts. One of these doughnut Casanovas will win a grand prize package that also includes a sweet ride to prom, a photo shoot and a $500 gift card to Dunkin’ Donuts, which you should probably share with your date because it would be the classy thing to do.

To enter, you just need to comment on this Instagram post using the hashtag #DDPromContest, and explain why you should win. These comments will be judged by their originality and “overall appeal.”

And for all of the folks who missed out on their proms back in the day, the contest rules don’t technically have an upper age limit. So it could be, at long last, your time to shine as well.
