Top Teen Fashion Designers compete for $10,000 scholarship using duct tape

What do you get when you mix creative teen minds with hundreds of rolls of duct tape? One amazing competition, that’s what!

The top ten finalists of the 18th Annual Duck® brand Stuck at Prom® Scholarship Contest have been chosen based on workmanship, originality, use of color and design, and of course, creativity, and it’s now up to you to determine the winners!

For the first time ever, Grand Prize-seeking students entered their Duck Tape® prom fashions individually (rather than as couples), allowing voters to crown the most dazzling dress design as well as the tip-top tux.

The Grand Prize Dress winner and the Grand Prize Tux winner, selected by public vote, will each receive a scholarship prize of $10,000, totaling $20,000.

The remaining eight runners up will receive a $100 Duck Tape® prize pack.

You decide! Beginning now, you can visit to view the 2018 Stuck at Prom® finalist gallery and vote for your favorites!

Polls are open until 9pm local time on June 25.

Winners will be announced on July 9!
