The 2018 CAPE Award winner will be announced and recognized at the 42nd Annual CAPE Award Reception and Award Ceremony on Tuesday, March 20, 2018 at Plainfield East High School, 12001 S. Naperville Road, Plainfield. Light refreshments will be served from 6-7:15 p.m. and the ceremony will start at 7:30 p.m.
