Duct Tape® your way to a $5,000 scholarship

Most scholarship applications consist of the basic letter of recommendation, transcript, personal statement, overview of activities, etc. These requirements leave little, if any, room for creativity, making it difficult to stand out from everyone else. But Duck Tape® brand duct tape continues to turn the tables by challenging students to scrap everything they thought they knew about how to land scholarship money, grab their favorite colors of duct tape, and truly stick out from the competition.

Back for its 11th year, the Duck Tape® brand duct tape Stuck at Prom® Scholarship Contest is once again asking students from the United States and Canada to create and accessorize prom outfits that are original, stunning and made out of duct tape.

The first place couple with the highest number of online votes will each win $5,000. The school that hosts the prom of the winning couple will also receive $5,000. The second place winners (earning the second highest number of online votes) will each receive $3,000 and $3,000 for the high school that hosted the prom, and the third place winners (earning the third highest number of online votes) will each receive a $2,000 scholarship and $2,000 for the high school that hosted the prom. The remaining seven couples in the judge-selected Top 10 will each receive a $500 scholarship and $500 for the school that hosted the prom. In addition to the Top 10 winners, six additional participants will receive Honorable Mentions and be awarded with a Duck Tape® prize pack for best purse, corsage, shoes, tie, jewelry and prop.

Interested participants can enter at StuckatProm.com starting Monday, March 7, 2011. Couples are required to submit at least one photo of themselves wearing their duct tape prom formalwear and complete all required registration information. Contest registration closes on Monday, June 13, 2011.

A panel of judges will choose 10 finalist couples based on: workmanship, originality, use of colors accessories and use of duct tape.
