A prom dress and tux made from duct tape might help pay for two students’ college tuition.
Senior Amber Squires and her prom date Kody Britt wore a matching ensemble made entirely of duct tape to Thursday night’s Green Sea Floyd High School prom.
The idea started in her 9th grade art class, when Squires’ art teacher Miss Hull mentioned the Stuck at Prom duct tape scholarship contest. The contest awards $5,000 to the best duct tape outfit, factoring in workmanship, originality, accessories and use of color. The school that hosted the prom also gets the same amount. The contest runs from March until June and winners are announced in May.
