These glam winning gowns in 2012 were created by creative high school girls just like you. Read on to find out how you can design a dress to win.
What could I win?
The memories you’ll make while creating your custom Stuck at Prom dress—and then rocking it at prom—are priceless. But college, however, is not. Luckily, Duck Tape is awarding 10 winning couples with cash scholarships for college.
- First place: $5,000 each
- Second place: $3,000 each
- Third place: $2,000 each
The seven remaining "runners up" couples will each receive $500. The school that hosted a winning couples' prom will also receive the same prize amount for that winner. (Example: The school of the first place winner will receive $5,000, the school of the second place winner will receive $3,000, and so on.)
