PR Newswire

AVON, Ohio, June 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- While many teens missed out on the opportunity to attend their prom in person this year, it didn't stop them from getting their creative juices flowing to enter Duck® Brand's 20th Annual Stuck at Prom® Scholarship Contest.  In fact, despite the unusual circumstances surrounding this year's contest, the company received a near record high of 355 dress and tux entries, which were all reviewed by a panel of judges to determine the top 10 finalists – five dresses and five tuxes.

Starting now, the public can vote online to crown two Grand Prize winners—one dress and one tux—who each receive a $10,000 scholarship. Eight runners up receive $500 scholarships and Duck® Brand prize packs worth $100.

The panel of judges selected the finalists by evaluating each Duck Tape® masterpiece on criteria including use of color and design, workmanship, and originality. They also considered how the Duck Tape® was utilized in the creation of the dress or tux and accessories.
