Tap on a question to learn more.
You do not! We’ve removed the requirement to wear your one-of-a-kind creation to prom. You’ll need to submit at least one photo of you decked out in your Duck Tape® prom attire at a location of your choosing.
Nope! There are two options for entering the Stuck At Prom contest:
1. You can create a written essay that details your outfit as requested on the entry form, or
2. You can create a video that showcases your outfit per the details in the entry form.
Whichever option you choose needs to be submitted when you enter the contest.
Note: If you do create a video, make sure it does not contain any brand names or logos other than Duck® Brand (i.e., TikTok watermark) or music you don’t have written permission to use.
Of course you can, although attending prom is no longer a requirement. But if you and your date will both be creating and wearing Duck Tape fashions, you’ll have to enter the contest separately, in either the “dress” or “tux” categories.
Because each state has its own laws governing sweepstakes, it’s difficult for us to offer promotions that can be entered by everyone throughout the US and Canada. Unfortunately, Duck® Brand has no control over those restrictions, and the states listed above prohibit entry to this contest. Some common restrictions include CA, TN & UT for alcohol related sweepstakes; MA, MI and VA do not allow tobacco-related sweeps; FL, NY and RI have more restrictive laws governing prizes of high value and so are often excluded; while Quebec has particularly stringent laws about sweepstakes. Although not legally restrictive, AK & HI are often omitted due to higher shipping costs for distributing prizes
It’s the coolest scholarship contest around, that’s what. Students are challenged to create and wear their own prom outfits made entirely from Duck Tape for the chance to win scholarship cash!

Hey, that’s like asking us to rent your tux or send you a free prom dress! Sorry, but it’s up to individuals and schools to supply their own Duck Tape® to make their prom wear creations.
We’d love to tell you “everyone is welcomed to enter!” But, you gotta play by the rules. So to enter the contest you must:
At Duck® Brand, we’re inclusive. So, our dress and tux categories are open to anyone – and everyone! Just make sure you meet the criteria for the category and Contest!
Good news! Entering isn’t just fun – it’s easy! Here’s how you do it: Head to the entry form. Then, submit at least one high resolution photo of you decked out in your Duck Tape® prom outfit plus all the required entry info during the contest entry period. If you’re under 18 yrs. old, don’t forget to get your parent’s permission. After you submit, a confirmation email will be sent right to your inbox.
Don’t worry, it’s probably a minor issue. Try this:
Still having trouble? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a screenshot and explanation of your issue.
Definitely! But if you do, be sure to include a photography release form signed by the photographer with your submission.
You’re free to create your Duck Tape® prom wear whenever you like. But you can only enter your creation during the official contest entry period.
Copyrights are tricky – and stricter than you think. If your Duck Tape® prom outfit or submission materials use existing work from someone else, it could be a copyright infringement. That means it could be disqualified from entry. So it’s best to avoid outfits that include:
• Characters from movies, books, or video games
• Sports teams and sports personalities
• Brand names and other logos (including TikTok watermark on video submissions)
• Album covers and lyrics from bands or musicians (including music you don’t have written permission to use in video submissions)
• Pieces of art
• The list goes on and on
We really want to see the cool outfits that come from your imagination! So dream up your own design! If you use any of the above - or any other copyright-protected material - you will be subject to disqualification at the discretion of our Stuck at Prom® and legal teams. For more information on copyright infringement, check out our Official Rules.
Absolutely! As long as you are enrolled in a home school association (at the high-school level) during the 2022 - 2023 school year. And again this year, we’ve removed the requirement to attend prom. See the Official Rules for more information.
Yes! You need to be enrolled in high school or home school association (at the high-school level) during the 2022 - 2023 school year. See the Official Rules for more information.
Sorry! We’ll only accept one (1) submission per category.
It depends! If you’ve entered in the past but didn’t win, good news! You can enter the contest again, but make sure it’s a brand new creation. You cannot reenter the same promwear twice. If you’ve entered in the past but did win a prize, unfortunately you cannot enter the contest again.
Sorry, but once an entry is submitted, it’s final. You can’t change or update your contest entry or any pics you’ve submitted.
You’ll get an email within 5 business days to let you know that your entry is accepted – or if it’s rejected. So once you submit your entry, watch your inbox for info and make sure to check your junk mail!
Not so fast! The submission information for all entries must be approved and verified before we can post photos in our gallery. This stuff takes time.
Here’s how it works: Duck® brand selects a panel of judges, and those judges will determine the finalists based on:
