4)       No 3D objects can be placed on the hat, such as flowers, bells or signs

5)       All decorations must lay flat

6)       Caps cannot make noise

7)       All decorations must be put on a piece of cardboard and attached to the hat with Velcro

8)       No decorations attached directly to the hat in case a mistake is made

9)       Princeton High School administration reserves the right to remove any decorations that are not deemed appropriate

10)    Administration needs to see a picture of hat decorations for final approval
