Duct Tape Prom Dresses

Every high school girl dreams of having the perfect prom dress, perfect date, and perfect night.  What if you could win a scholarship up to $5,000 because of how great you and your date dress?  The catch is, the dress and tuxedo need to be made of duct tape.  The first place winners receive $5,000, second place winners receive $3,000, and third place winners receive $2,000.

Spring Break and Easter 2011 may have ended, but Prom Season  is in full swing.  Duck brand duct tape wants teenagers across the U.S. and Canada to bring out their creative side, making prom dresses and tuxedos out of duct tape.There are some rules that come with this contest:

  1. No purchase is necessary.  On the contest website, Duck brand duct tape is sold, but you do not have to buy your dress- or tux- making materials from there.
  2. You and your date must be legal U.S. or Canadian residents.
  3. Both of you must be at least 14 years old.

The contest began on March 7th this year and ends on June 13th, 2011.  The judges will use the same judging criteria on each contest entrant and will select ten finalists who will move on to public voting.  The judging criteria are based on workmanship, originality, use of color, accessories, and, most importantly, use of duct tape.  Public voting will begin on June 17, 2011 and will be held on www.stuckatprom.com until July 11, 2011.  There will be honorable mentions for Best Purse, Best Corsage, Best Shoes, Best Tie, Best Jewelry, and Best Prop, but no cash prizes will be given to the honorable mention winners.  This contest is a great way to get a scholarship and create a great memory for your prom!

EDIT: Mark your calendars!  Here are the dates you must keep in mind for 2012:

    Well I’m trying to finish classed for my RN so it says over 14.

    My daughter has said that when she gets older, she will absolutely make her prom dress out of duct tape. That’s pretty awesome.
