Congratulations to our mortarboard contest winners!

Mortarboards and hardhats decorated by Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering graduates.

The Class of 2024 did an excellent job decorating their mortarboards for the Spring 2024 Fulton Schools Convocation ceremonies. Decorations spanned a variety of themes, including messages of thanks and celebration, expressions of our grads’ individuality and fun pop culture references. Some grads even channeled the force and brought some extra flair from a galaxy far, far away to celebrate May the 4th, or Star Wars Day, in their designs. Check out many of the mortarboards on display at Convocation in our Flickr gallery.

Based on submissions to the Fulton Schools mortarboard decorating contest, one grad was selected for the best Star Wars theme and three additional grads were selected based on their creativity. Congratulations to our winners, who will receive Fulton Schools swag packages:
