The parent company for Polaris Fashion Place, Washington Prime Group, will host a digital graduation cap photo contest called #ScholarSpree, presented in partnership withVervantis, Inc and Lewis Sign. Washington Prime Group is giving away $10,000 to 13 lucky winners who will have the chance to win prizes ranging from $500 to $3,000 to spend at any Washington Prime Group property nationwide. The prize money is intended to help graduates prepare for their next steps after graduation.

High school and University graduates from the class of 2020 are encouraged to decorate the top of their graduation cap, or submit a creative graduation photo, and then share their masterpiece on social media, tagging @WashingtonPrimeGroup with the hashtag #ScholarSpree. All of the entries will be posted on a landing page where friends and family can vote for their favorite design. Winners will be determined by the caps with the most votes on the website. The #ScholarSpree contest will run from May 8 until June 12. Winners will be announced June 19.

All of the entries will be pulled together to create a unique work of art – a digital mosaic posted on the Polaris Fashion Place website. The celebratory tribute is another way to honor graduates across the country, during this time of social distancing.
