Duct tape prom dress could win Kansas teen $5,000
SOLOMON, Kan. — A Kansas teen has earned a spot as a finalist in a national design competition with a prom dress made entirely from duct tape.
Brooke Wallace, 17, of Solomon, spent more than 200 hours fashioning a western-style prom dress for herself and a suit for her date from 42 rolls of duct tape. Wallace told The Salina Journal the effort wasn't just for kicks: She and her date, Mark Aylward, could each win $5,000 scholarships and their school could get $5,000 too.
The couple was recently named one of 10 finalists in a design contest sponsored by duct tape maker Duck Tape. The competition required couples to make and wear outfits made from duct tape to their spring proms and post pictures on a website. The winners will be chosen through online voting that runs through July 11.
