Cartoon Caption Contest

Cartoon Caption Contest

Welcome to Inside Higher Ed's monthly Cartoon Caption Contest, featuring the work of Matthew Henry Hall. Each month, we will invite readers to suggest an apt, clever, funny or otherwise outstanding caption for a new cartoon; submissions can be made in the comments section below that cartoon or, if you insist, via e-mail at (Readers are encouraged to like or endorse their favorites in the comments section, too.)

Vote for your favorite caption for last month's cartoon

And the Winner is...

Congratulations are in order for Donald Larsson, a professor of English at Minnesota State University-Mankato. His caption for our December cartoon -- "We have reliable reports from male and female students that you see them when they're sleeping, you know when they're awake, and you've made threats about what might happen if they pout or cry!" -- was our readers' favorite from among the three finalists chosen by our panel of judges. He will receive an Amazon gift certificate and a signed copy of the cartoon. This is Professor Larsson's second time winning the contest.
