Derby #212: Back to School

Hey, this Derby's over. When you're finished reliving past glories, check out what's going on in the Derby right now. It's probably even cooler. Or at least newer.

August is in full swing, and that means kids across America are already regretting the hours they wasted because it's almost time to head back to school. So this week we want you to give us your best back-to-school-inspired designs. Show us the excitement first-timers might feel, the dread those of us with more experience have in the pit of our stomachs, or depict the rituals of the season: buying supplies, new clothes, you know the drill. Now for the rules:
