Decorated mortarboards

Yesterday was my daughters graduation it was really fun to see all the decorated mortarboards. I had never seen it before and was a little hesitant to allow her to do it but she guaranteed me that it was allowed and that many children decorated their mortarboards. Most the kids that shows to decorate put this symbol or the name of the college they were attending it was really fun to see all the different colors the creativity and the vast variety of colleges some shows just to decorate with flowers or design.

Does your high school allow this?


I will post a photo of her mortarboard when I get home and am able to do so.

My hs didn't allow it either when I graduated over 30 years ago. 

Saw a college graduation on my tv that was local.  I would say 90% did not have anything on their's either.  Guess it is a regional thing or school by school.

Our high school does not allow it, but my oldest graduated from college in May and many of the girls decorated theirs. Mostly symbols of their major- nursing was popular- or their sorority letters. It was fun to see the colors, glitter, etc.

Yes but in the high school grad .contract it says that they are checked while in line and if it is inappropriate they wont walk.They are mostly college symbols or smiley faces kind of things.

I have attended 5 different college ceremonies in the past few years and all the schools had a lot of decorated mortarboards.
