When 18-year-old Peyton Manker decided to enter this year's Stuck at Prom contest this January, she never thought it would turn her into an overnight internet sensation. But she has definitely been getting a lot of attention on social media lately for her one-of-a-kind prom dress which she single-handedly created out of dozens of rolls of duct-tape.
The long-running competition challenges high-school graduates to make their own prom attire using as much Duck-brand duct tape as possible, for a chance to win a $10,000 scholarship. When the Covid-19 pandemic happened, she decided to build her dress around it. Both her prom and graduation were canceled this year, but that didn't stop Peyton from spending just under 400 hours of work and 41 rolls of Duck duct tape into her prom dress. She never got to wear it in front of her classmates.
However, her mom shared photos of the dress in a Facebook post that has now been shared over 250,000 times. Since then, Peyton has been overwhelmed by praise and congratulatory messages from all over the world. Although Duck duct tape will only select one winner for its annual Stuck at Prom competition on July 21, Peyton already considers herself a winner after getting so much positive feedback for her unique prom dress. If she does win the $10,000 scholarship, though, she plans to invest it in her college fund.
