Top 10 Finalists in Duck® Brand’s 22nd Annual Stuck at Prom® Scholarship Contest Announced Today

Jun 29, 2022 | Duck Brand

Today, 10 Grand Prize-seeking students are one step closer to winning college scholarships after being selected as one of the top 10 finalists in Duck® Brand’s 22nd Annual Stuck at Prom® Scholarship Contest. Now that the finalists have dazzled the judges with their designs, it’s time for the public to vote online to crown the winners.

To participate in the contest, young makers from across the U.S. and Canada crafted intricate and impressive Duck Tape® ensembles in hopes of taking home one of two $10,000 cash college scholarships up for grabs. After reviewing each entry based on the use of color, workmanship, originality, accessories and how Duck Tape® was used in the design, contest judges selected the top 10 finalists – five in the Dress category and five in the Tux category.

“It takes creativity, curiosity and commitment to thrive in this contest and we saw that in all of the entries,” said Ashley Luke, senior product manager at Shurtape Technologies, LLC, the company that markets the Duck® brand. “These talented teens recognized an opportunity to turn prom into a chance to win college scholarships and they went for it! We are beyond impressed with their skills and style. We can’t wait to see who wins the Grand Prizes.”
