Maumee teen wins $10,000 scholarship for duct tape dress

2019 “DUCK® BRAND DUCT TAPE STUCK AT PROM® SCHOLARSHIP CONTEST”

MAUMEE, Ohio (WTVG) - A Maumee teen will have a rather unique item to add to her resume: winner of the 2019 Duck Brand Duct Tape Stuck At Prom Dress Grand Prize.

Maya Ramirez's black, gold and white mash-up of 1920s and 1950s fashion was the top vote-getter in the competition, earning her a $10,000 cash scholarship.

She also incorporated her own Guatemalan-American heritage into the piece, utilizing a weaving pattern common in that country's textile industry.
