The tassels have all been turned, the stages walked — spring commencement season is complete, and now our graduates are showing off their decorated caps on social media. The annual contest, overseen by the Office of Strategic Communications, encourages social media users to vote for their favorite caps by “liking” photos on Facebook. Voting runs from 10 a.m. Wednesday (June 19) and ends at 11:59 a.m. Thursday, June 27.

This year’s winner will receive a $300 Amazon gift card, a membership to the Cal Aggie Alumni Association and an assortment of items emblazoned with the UC Davis logo.

To see the entrants and vote for your favorites, visit the UC Davis Facebook page — but not until tomorrow (June 19)!
