Core Cartoon Caption Contest

Cartoon drawing of several persons seated, and one person standing, at a a table with open books. All are holding miniature pillars overhead, and the person standing has the words 'The Core' written on the individual's shirt.


In honor of the Centennial, we asked four artistic alums to take inspiration from the Core; for this and the next three issues, we’ll provide a cartoon in need of a caption. We’re kicking things off with longtime New Yorker contributor Edward Koren ’57.

The winning caption will be published in the Winter 2019–20 issue, and the winner will get a signed print of Koren’s cartoon. Any College student or College alum may enter. Submit your idea, along with your full name, CC class year and daytime phone, to by Friday, November 1.
