UPDATE: The winner of our graduation cap contest is Susan Ray-Badger of Mt. Vernon! Her hand-painted, "Starry Night" cap caught the eye and appreciation of our judges. There were so many great designs. We appreciate all the grads who showed their style and creativity at Commencement '19.
INA, Ill. (May 15, 2019) — We have seen some really spectacular graduation caps at our Commencement ceremonies over the years. We really took notice at last year's event. Rend Lake grads came up with some great designs and messages. This year, we thought we would reward all that creativity.
We will pick our favorite at the 2019 Commencement and give that grad a $50 Amazon gift card!
All you have to do is decorate your graduation cap. That's it. We'll be looking from above. Good luck! We can't wait to see what you come up with. We are going to announce the winner after Commencement on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. So go follow us if you don't already.
If you would like to show off your cap on social media, we would love to share. Use #RendLakegrad so we can find you!
