AVON, Ohio, Feb. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, the promposal is just as significant as the prom itself. Spelling "prom?" with pepperoni on pizza, crafting Duck Tape® roses and giant duct tape posters, filling lockers with products and signs, or harnessing the power of the jumbotron at a sporting event are just a few ways that teens are getting creative and "popping the question." Not only are these promposals becoming more elaborate every year, they are also costly. The average American household with teens is shelling out $324 for the gesture1 – that's more than one third of the total that the average prom-going teen spends on the special event.

Not only is the promposal itself pricey, add in dresses, flowers, accessories and hair, and many families are spending close to $1,0001 on the special event. To help offset the costs of the big dance, Duck® brand is introducing a new and exciting element to the iconic Stuck at Prom® Scholarship Contest: the Stuck at Prom® Promposal Sweepstakes.
"We realize how much time our Stuck at Prom formalwear entrants devote to the contest every year," said Ashley Luke, category manager at ShurTech Brands, LLC, the company that markets the Duck® brand. "We hope the Stuck at Prom® Promposal Sweepstakes will provide a new opportunity for makers to showcase their Duck Tape® crafting talents – while helping to offset some of the costs associated with prom."
Duck® brand invites students to utilize the vibrant assortment of Duck Tape® colors, designs and crafting tapes – as well as its original silver – to create their fun and unique promposal, and then share their stories on social media for a chance to win one of three $1,000 prizes to help offset the costs of prom. High school students can simply post an entry photo via a public Instagram® or Twitter® account and include the hashtag #DuckTapePromposal and #Sweepstakes.
The Stuck at Prom Promposal Sweepstakes begins on February 1, 2017 and ends on April 5, 2017. Sweepstakes winners will be chosen at random and announced on or around April 7, 2017.
