It’s commencement month, which means it’s time for the annual ACE Grad Cap Contest!

All 2021 ACE graduates can enter for a chance to win a $100 Amazon gift card and a beautiful ACE diploma frame by decorating a graduation cap and sharing a photo of it with us. All graduates who registered for commencement will receive a grad cap as part of their ACE Graduation Box, so feel free to use it as the canvas for your work of art.

There will be two grand prize winners. See below for how to enter.

The contest will close on Friday, July 23, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. ET. A panel of volunteer judges from across the college will vote on their favorite entries. The two entries that receive the most votes will be declared the winners. Winners will be contacted during the week of July 26, 2021.
