Grand Prize:

Carbon Career & Technical Institute Yearbook – Pe

Entry Description: After brainstorming a list of possible topics, the yearbook staff voted on “A Piece of the Puzzle" as the theme for the 2012 yearbook. They felt that it was especially appropriate for our school since it is a career & technical school which prepares its students to fill a variety of career roles, like pieces in society’s puzzle. The design concept flowed naturally from the theme.

2nd Place:

ntry Description: This year we completed the first building (the middle and high school) in our 3 year plan to completely relocate to our school property.

Entry Description: The year 2012 is known to be the year the world ends, so our theme was “end of the world" — or “seniors ’till the end."
