Best graduation photo of SPU’s 2020 incoming class

Although graduation looked different this year, it’s one of the most exciting parts of high school — show off how you celebrated graduation with photos of your cap and gown, senior signs, or drive-by graduation! On June 22, we launched our annual #spubound photo contest for Seattle Pacific's 2020 incoming class.

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

You voted to choose the best photo, and you chose Mia's "Deepening Passions" photo as the winner! She has won $50 to donate to an education nonprofit organization. Congratulations Mia!

All students who have submitted photos will be entered into the raffle to win a $150 Amazon gift card at the end of the contest. Every photo submission per theme will count as a raffle entry.

Voting ended at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, July 3.
