Glen Cove High School Yearbook

Entry Description: Glen Cove High School colors maroon and green were evident in our color scheme and we were very serious about having this be a very inclusive yearbook that represents our diverse student population and our sense of unity. We also wanted it to be fun by designing some pages as if they were comic book style with interactive qualities.

Cover Design

1st Prize:

Spotswood High School -2018 Yearbook

Entry Description: Our yearbook theme is Looking back to the Past and Looking into the future. The black and white represents the past and the blue and yellow (our school colors) represent now and the future. The lightning bolt focuses on our principal(center), who is retiring this year. The cover will be done in a matte finish with Spotswood High School, 2018 and the outline of the lightning bolt in gold foil. The idea for the cover and the creation were completed by Sheliza Dollete, yearbook editor. This submission is being made by Barbara Furman, yearbook advisor. Sheliza is truly talented and work diligently to perfect our cover, one that I am proud to submit into the contest as her advisor.

2nd Place:

Messmer High School 2018 Yearbook

Entry Description: Every year there is a scriptural theme selected, developed, and promoted throughout the school year. This was our current theme in both English and Spanish.

3rd Place:

Unalaska City School 2018 Yearbook

Entry Description: I was looking at cover designs online and I thought that having a bar of color along the side would look nice and play into our theme well, seeing that our theme had to do with art. I thought of our school colors, gold and blue, and thought that I could make the sides sort of “bleed blue and gold" like our school saying. I wanted the yearbook cover to accurately represent our school pride and show who we are as a whole.
