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.
