Nothing quite says “I’m so happy to be graduating” like bejeweled, painted, glittered-up or otherwise fancied-up mortar boards.
And we want to see them.
Gone are the days when a simple message of “Thanks, Mom and Dad” in masking tape would suffice. Graduates get more creative each year. Have you seen the elaborate 3-D constructions some grads wear on their heads?
What will the Class of 2015 come up with?
Send us photos of you or your favorite Kansas City-area graduates and their decorated mortar boards. Tell us how these creations were made. And please include names, city and a daytime phone number in case we need to reach you.
Email your pics to firstname.lastname@example.org. (Put “mortar boards” in the subject line.) Deadline is May 19.
We’ll publish our favorites in an upcoming FYI section and on KansasCity.com.
