Creating a yearbook is hard work. It takes perseverance and creativity. It requires the cooperation of the entire school and a lot of dedication from a few key people. That’s why we want to recognize those individuals who have poured their heart into preserving these memories. Our Yearbook Legacy Contest awards schools with cash prizes that go towards their yearbook program to help make next year’s book their best one yet.
Schools from all over the nation submit their yearbooks for consideration. They are judged on the following criteria: design and creativity, theme and development, photography, written content, and overall impression. There are two divisions: elementary and middle/high schools.
Here are the winners of the 2015-2016 Legacy Contest and their respective prizes:
