Theone-of-a-kind dresses have been popping up on prom night for years and now offer students a chance at a $3,000 scholarship.In Grafton, Ohio, Rachel Cunningham and her date, Billy Oliver, wore their homemade creations to the Midview High School prom in early May.

The pair chose the theme of Mother Nature and Father Time for their outfits, which used 47 rolls of duct tape in 18 colors."It took a lot of trial-and-error," Cunningham said to The Morning Journal .

"But I got better and better at it as I went."The colorful outfits also got them selected for a national contest sponsored by the maker of Duck brand duct tape.

Two Flathead High School students in Kalispell, Mont., are also among the finalists in a national duct tape prom-wear contest.

Charden Wood says it took about a month to create her flamenco dress and her date's pin-striped suit.

Her date, Steven Quade, said duct tape doesn't breathe, and his suit was very warm.

"My suit was really hot, duct tape doesn't breathe at all."The "Stuck at Prom" contest is down to 10 finalist, out of over 200 entries.

The winning couple and school will each receive $3,000 scholarships.

Online voting is available at www.stuckatprom.com .

The last day for voting is July 2, and winners will be announced July 9.If you are planning to make your own duct tape dress, a do-it-yourself fashion blog offers some instruction.
