EAGLE POINT, Ore. -- A new tradition is starting at Eagle Point High School this year. Seniors are able to paint their own parking spots. 

To be eligible to paint their own spot seniors must have a 3.0 or higher GPA, have a 92 percent attendance rate, and already have a parking spot. If a student falls below those requirements, their spot will be panted over and they will lose their parking privileges. 

NewsWatch 12 stopped by on Thursday for day one of the painting project. We met several seniors who are excited to be able to show off their personalities and creativity. 

Senior Matilde Arias says a lot of the students have drawn inspiration from their favorite movies and music. Arias says one student chose a design that is based off of the Lion King. Another student chose to paint the "Drake album 'If You're Reading This'" says Arias. 

Arias says she hopes the parking privileges will inspire underclassman to want to keep their grades up and have good attendance. 

Teachers and staff are also able to paint their own spots.
