AVON, Ohio (March 31, 2021) — Whether you’re celebrating prom night in-person or from your couch (and looking for cool Insta-worthy photo-ops), Duck® brand’s 21st Annual Stuck at Prom® Scholarship Contest is your opportunity to design fashion-forward Duck Tape® prom looks (and matching accessories) and share them virtually with the world. Nearly $25,000 in scholarships and prizes will be awarded to the winners, so grab your bestie or date and have some fun taking pics in your masterpiece.

Beginning March 31, creative, college-bound teens who are enrolled in high school or home school, are invited to begin snipping and stitching their Duck Tape® creations.

“Last year, students across the country used their extra time at home to get crafty and flex their artistic skills. Despite the pandemic and uncertainty of proms, we had more Stuck at Prom entries than ever before—their creativity was astonishing. In fact, one of our 2020 Stuck at Prom winners made a coronavirus-themed ball gown,” said Ashley Luke, senior product manager at Shurtape Technologies, LLC, the company that markets the Duck® brand. “This year, we look forward to seeing the creative spirit and style of teens from America and Canada.”

How It Works:

During the entry period, participants are invited to submit photos and video of their finished Duck Tape® dress or tux at

A panel of judges will then select 10 finalists—5 from the dress category and 5 from the tux category—based on the following criteria: use of color, workmanship, originality and how Duck Tape® was used in the design.

The public will vote online to crown two Grand Prize winners—one dress and one tux. The top two designers will each receive a $10,000 scholarship. The eight runners up receive $500 scholarships and Duck® brand prize packs worth $100.
