It'll be your first home away from home, so make the most of it.
Dorm room decor poses a challenge -- and an opportunity -- for incoming college freshmen. They and other college students can take advantage of the "Decorate the dorm of your dreams" contest.
The winner will receive a dorm-room makeover, which will include a shopping spree and consultation from a design specialist. Other prizes will also be awarded.
To enter, college-bound high school seniors and college students must submit a photo of their dorm room or bedroom, and attach a 3-inch by 5-inch index card with their contact information by Aug. 15.
Entries can be submitted at www.thefledgling.com or by mail: Decorate The Dorm of Your Dreams, The CollegeBound Network, 2071 Clove Road Suite 206, Staten Island, N.Y. 10304.
