Stuck at Prom: Duck Tape Masterpieces

I was never this creative as a teen. I wish they could all win the main prize. See all the finalists at https://www.duckbrand.com/stuck-at-prom

15 rolls of tape and 80 hours of work: Iowa teen makes duct tape tuxedo

A senior at Jesup High School made an Iowa-themed tuxedo entirely out of duct tape and has the chance to win a $10,000 scholarship for the work.

Casey Alferink, 18, had a lot of free time during study halls as a spring semester senior, he said, and was looking for scholarships to apply to when he stumbled across the duct tape "Stuck at Prom" competition.

"I love art and creating things especially 3-D things," Alferink said. "I was super excited to learn about this scholarship because I got to use my more creative side and show off my creativity something different than an essay."

Casey Alferink, a senior at Jesup High School, created a tuxedo entirely out of duct tape as a part of the "Stuck at Prom" scholarship competition.

Each year, Duck Brand hosts the competition and asks graduating seniors to submit their homemade tuxedos and dresses, all made entirely out of the tape. The winners in the dress and tux categories each get a $10,000 scholarship; runners-up win a $500 cash scholarship and a Duck Brand Prize Pack worth $100. . .
