School Prom

In the United States, a prom, short for promenade, is a formal dance held at the end of the years of high school and college, called junior prom and senior prom respectively. In British English such an event would be called a ball, although in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand it is also often called a formal. In Australian schools the terms used are either formal or sometimes as Leaver's Dinner, usually so when the night includes a meal. In Ireland it is known as a debs (an abbreviation of debutante ball). In the U.S. a "formal" is typically a similar dance that is held by a fraternity or sorority affiliated with a certain college or university. In Australia, the term "prom" has also come into sparse usage and in Britain it is becoming widespread, because of US influence. The name is derived from the late ninteenth century practice of a Promenade ball. The end of year tradition stemmed from the Graduation Ball tradition.

It's amazing these came from Duck ® Tape (and a lot of creativity and hard work)!

Holly Nelson, 17, of Willington, Conn., and Bing Xu, 18, of Ashford, Conn., were named winners of the 2006 Duck® brand duct tape Stuck at Prom® Scholarship Contest, and each was awarded a $3,000 college scholarship. Nelson and Xu designed, created and wore their artistic duct tape attire to the Edwin O. Smith High School prom this spring, and entered the sixth annual Duck ® brand duct tape Stuck at Prom ® Scholarship Contest.

Nelson and Xu, dressed from head to toe in duct tape, outdid 232 couples from 48 states and three Canadian provinces. For five years, Nelson has followed the contest, collecting ideas and dreaming of her senior prom. As a senior, Nelson convinced her independent study teacher on the idea of devoting her final semester to designing her duct tape prom outfit and entering the contest. With a little coaxing, Xu was on board.

The duo’s original and artistic creation was the result of five months of hard work, including more than 230 individual designs, countless hours after school and more than 25 rolls of Duck® brand duct tape, ranging in color from black and red to purple and fluorescent green. Inspired by a fascination with traditional Cambodian court dance attire, Nelson’s dress combined color, texture and design with her creative imagination. The ensemble was highlighted by a unique embroidery pattern at the base of the bodice, which was created from a colorful combination of rolled "threads" of duct tape.
