Best decorated graduation cap of SPU’s 2019 incoming class

Graduation is one of the most exciting parts of high school —  and it means being able to show off your decorated graduation cap! On June 17, we launched our annual #spubound photo contest for Seattle Pacific’s 2019 incoming class.

Incoming students showed us their #bestgradcap photos on social media, and we narrowed it down to the top six.

You voted to choose the best grad cap, and you chose Mariah’s “it wasn’t for nothing” cap as the winner! She’s the first of seven #spubound winners who will receive a $25 Amazon gift card at Orientation. Congratulations Mariah!

All students who have submitted photos will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win Airpods at the end of the contest. Every photo submission per theme will count as a raffle entry.

Voting closed on Sunday, June 30 at 11:59 p.m.
