PLAIN CITY, Utah – A Fremont High School student designed and made a prom dress entirely out of duct tape in hopes of winning a scholarship.

Sheridan Moore used 25 rolls of Duck brand duct tape and spent 45 hours creating a prom dress and matching suit as part of the “Stuck at Prom” contest.

Sheridan’s dress has already earned her some scholarship money and a spot in the National Top 10. If she receives the most votes, Sheridan will win even more money for college.

Sheridan says her full-length silver gown, complete with about 200 duct tape flowers, is really heavy and hard to keep on.

“It’s super hot and it’s heavy. It’s kind of hard to walk in because I don’t have very far to move my legs, my bottom legs are doing all the work. It makes me have good posture I guess,” she said.

If Sheridan’s creation wins the top prize, she’ll get $5,000. To see the entries and vote for Sheridan, visit
