Will You Be Our Date to the Duct-tape Prom?

It's prom season, people. Remember prom in all of its glory? The date drama, rented limos, packing condoms in your Claire's purse, going to someone's shore house only to realize they don't have toilet paper or heat ... Oh, the memories. If you could do it all over again, what would you change? Well, we'd like to go to the duct-tape prom, that's for sure. It's the ninth year for this Duck brand duct tape "Stuck at Prom" contest, where students compete to create the most innovative outfits out of the sticky stuff. Judges choose the best by their use of the twenty colors, originality, accessories, and quantity. The first-place couple gets $3,000 each, which is barely enough to buy three credits at college anymore. But who cares about the future when you're known as That Girl or That Guy who won the duct-tape prom? That kind of thing "sticks" with you forever. Winners will be picked June 9, but that doesn't mean you can't judge some of the submissions now. Click ahead to see students from Swainsboro High School in Swainsboro, Georgia, in all of their duct-tape debauchery.
