Christian Academy of Guatemala

2021 GRAND PRIZE WINNER

Yearbook Advisor: Jackie Davis

The Entourage Yearbooks National Yearbook Competition is a nationally sponsored contest judging school yearbooks across the dimensions of creativity, originality, and journalistic relevance. Hundreds of schools enter across all fifty states at the Elementary, Middle School, and very competitive High School level.

This achievement recognizes Christian Academy of Guatemala for putting together a notable yearbook at the High School level. Their entry was submitted at the end of March 2021 and was officially awarded on October 16th, 2021. The Christian Academy of Guatemala yearbook was selected from hundreds of schools that submitted entries from around the country.

"Our school neighbors a mountain range that has an active volcano. These inspired the triangle shapes that you see on the covers and throughout the book,"
said Christian Academy of Guatemala Yearbook Designer, Rebekah Suh. "The overall goal for the theme/design was to make it as simple and minimalistic as possible. This allows the stories and photos within it to shine."
