Pendleton - Two recent Pendleton Heights High School graduates are in the running against nine other couples from the United States and Canada for first place in the 2014 Duck Brand Duct Tape Stuck at Prom contest.
Putting their creative abilities to the test in hopes of winning two $10,000 college scholarships, the two friends set out more than three months ago to make a themed prom dress and tuxedo from nothing but duct tape and determination.
“I’ve wanted to do this for quite a few years because of the scholarship,” Aaron Porter, 18, said. “It just seemed like a really fun thing to do.”
Porter said he approached his partner Madeline Harris, 17, after becoming friends in choir and seeing her artistic talents at school.
“I was trying to find someone that was artistic to do this with me; she’s one of the most artistic people at the school,” Porter said. “We were in choir together and we had all this down time at competitions, so I thought I would ask her.”
