The couple can be co-ed or of the same gender. The contest rules do allow for home-schooled students to enter. Each member of the couple does not have to attend the same school; however, the school hosting the prom will receive any winnings if the couple is chosen as the first-, second-, or third-place winners. If an applicant's school's prom falls before or after the contest entry period, he/she will not be able to participate in the contest. Each entry will be reviewed by a panel of judges and the potential winners will be selected based on a composite score using the following criteria: workmanship (30 percent); originality (30 percent); use of category appropriate colors (15 percent); accessories (15 percent); and quantity of duct tape used (10 percent). Contest winners will be announced in July.
