If you’ve put off voting for Ronnita Whipple in her bid to win scholarship money for making prom outfits out of duct tape, Tuesday is the deadline.

The 19-year-old, a recent graduate of Central High School, spent more than 400 hours creating a prom dress and tuxedo from 90 rolls of tape as part of the 2014 Duck brand Stuck at Prom Scholarship Contest.

She’s one of 10 finalists vying for a $10,000 grand prize.
