Core Corner

Core Cartoon Caption Contest

Caption Contest

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

This installment is by Dr. Benjamin Schwartz ’03, PS’08, a regular cartoonist for The New Yorker.

The winning caption will be published in the Summer 2020 issue, and the winner will get a signed print of Schwartz’s cartoon. Any College student or College alum may enter; no more than three entries per person. Submit your idea, along with your full name, CC class year and daytime phone, to cct_centennial@columbia.edu by Monday, May 11.


Congratulations to Tom McNamee 99, the winner of our Winter issue contest! Thank you for all your submissions.
