The Core Cartoon Caption Contest: CC

Published: July 8, 2020

The final installment of the Core Cartoon Caption Contest is here! Created by author and graphic novelist Ariel Schrag CC’03, this cartoon is a humorous take on Contemporary Civilization.

The winning caption will be published in the Fall 2020 issue, and the winner will get a signed print of Schrag’s cartoon. Any College student or College alum may enter; no more than three entries per person.

In honor of the Centennial, CCT asked four artistic alums to take inspiration from the Core and provide a cartoon in need of your caption — one for each of the four issues this academic year.
