Duct Tape Prom: Will You Go With Me?

Kim Conte

For years I was pretty proud of myself for using silver duct tape to hold together my car. But these high school prom-goers have found a much more creative purpose for this relentlessly sticky substance: They've used it to make prom dresses and tuxedos as part of the "Stuck at Prom" duct tape scholarship contest.

Here's how it works: Couples compete for a $3,000 scholarship by designing and creating prom dresses and prom tuxedos made completely out of duct tape. You can see all the participants and vote for your favorite entry at the official Stuck at Prom Web site until July 2. Winners will be announced on July 9.

Really, you've got to see the photos. These kids are so creative!
