Okay, now let me explain. When I was a junior in high school, I went to a college meeting in which they mentioned that among all the crazy scholarships out there, there was one that involved making a prom dress out of duct tape and wearing it to prom. I thought this sounded awesome, but when I tried to check it out in November of this year, I thought I was too late to register. However, in April, I decided to check it out again and found out I was just in time! I immediately sought out a partner and got to work on my dress. My friend Luke stepped up to the plate and was very obliging throughout the entire process. We used 27 rolls of colored duct tape during 130 hours of intense work. It was frustrating, fun, and one of the most unusual experiences of my life. We wore it to prom and won a lot of attention. Everyone wanted to touch it and Luke could attest to the fact that it was a very sweaty experience.
Today we were informed that we were picked as one of the top 10 entries, giving us a chance at the $5000 scholarship prize. In order to win, we need your votes, the votes of your friends, your family and your co-workers, and if you have any pets with an email address, we need their votes too. Should we win, I will receive $5000, Luke will receive $5000, and our high school will receive $5000. 100% of this money is going toward education.
You can vote once a day, everyday until July 11th.
Thank you so much for your support, and please spread the word.
