  • 2018 MarauderMarcus High SchoolFlower Mound, Texas

    Theme: “We’ve All Been There”
    Adviser: Allison Miller
    Editors: Katie Clarke, Scout Streit
    Walsworth representative: Jill Chittum - MJE
    Award: CSPA Silver Crown

    Marcus High School is a BIG school (3,200 students), and they produce a BIG yearbook (430+ pages). The 2018 Marauder staff viewed their book as a chance to commemorate all the similar experiences Marcus High students shared, even on such a massive campus. Descriptions of those shared experiences showed through phrases on the cover and division pages, all starting with the words “We’ve all...” The coverage was organized by season and the creativity impressed, with the staff diving into spreads like distracting tech gadgets and the differences between the shoes in each sport.

    Theme: "Effect"
    Adviser: Sarah Shanmugam
    Editor: Jeffrey Horst
    Walsworth representative: Elana Sacino
    Award: CSPA Silver Crown

    It didn’t matter to the staff of the 2018 Parousia that their school and yearbook were small. As editor Jeffrey Horst wrote in the book’s opening, “We may be small in the scheme of creation, but God created us to accomplish big things.” The book’s theme, “Effect,” represented how each of Maranatha’s 300 students had an effect on the year. The coverage divided into traditional sections, with each one represented by its own theme color. The handwritten theme font first appeared on the cover, along with a butterfly, tying back into the theme with a nod to the “butterfly effect.”

    Editors: Kelsey Gibson, Xytlali Compean
    Walsworth representative: Lori Garcia
    Award: CSPA Silver Crown

    For their school’s 15th anniversary yearbook, the Legend staff went with the theme “It’s All in Our Heads” – a poignant theme that represented all the hopes, dreams and ambitions of El Dorado students during a year when the school’s population dropped. The mixture of color and black and white photos gave the book a feeling of nostalgia, and the 15th anniversary timeline section was beautifully done. Student goals and successes drove the coverage, organized by season.

    Walsworth representative: Lori Garcia
    Award: CSPA Silver Crown

    As the last year before their school was set to go through major renovations, the Burges staff used the 2018 Hoofbeats to capture that last moment in time and remember their school “as they knew it.” The photography in Hoofbeats frequently amazed, starting with the sunset captured on the cover. And the book pulls from a pleasing color palette that doesn’t overwhelm. The organization of the book was traditional and cohesive, with each division page featuring a list of topics and page numbers covered in that section.

    Editors: Rose Long, Avery Norris
    Walsworth representative: Jenny Olson
    Award: CSPA Silver Crown

    The Woodland staff put the focus on student voices and on moments that often go unnoticed during the school year and “amplified” them. The graphic on the cover and front endsheet, reminiscent of soundwaves, consistently repeated throughout the book, as did the theme colors of red, yellow and green. The coverage, organized by season, included many students in the book through the use of pull quotes that run along the bottom of the pages and fun infographics with interesting, memorable student facts from the year.

    Awards: CSPA Gold Crown, NSPA Pacemaker

    When you go to Legacy High School, you become part of the legacy, something the Arena staff made very clear with the 2018 edition of their yearbook. Starting with the red-tinted mascot, tucked behind a Plexiglas inset on the cover, the whole book seemed to be soaked in the school colors of red and black. The staff even printed 26 cards representing different extracurricular activities that could be placed in slots to appear behind the Plexiglas. Infused with school spirit and filled with several eye-popping spreads, the book included one spread where students picked their own superlative and another stuffed with noteworthy stats from the football season.

    Walsworth representatives: Missy Green, Adam Livesay - CJE, Tracy de la Feuilliez - CJE
    Awards: CSPA Silver Crown, NSPA Pacemaker Finalist

    In the colophon, editor Camille McNairy wrote that with the 2018 Odyssey the staff wanted to “move away from minimalism.” Mission accomplished there. Every page you turned to in the Odyssey featured something to look at – hand-drawn doodles, scribbles, circles, highlights – almost as if someone went through and marked up the book. It all adds up to a beautiful book you can’t take your eyes off. The traditionally organized coverage doesn’t just stick to traditional stories, embracing pieces that made University High unique, like all the different languages students spoke.

    Award: CSPA Silver Crown

    With the 2018 Raider, editors Susan Huang and Isabel Solorzano set out to create a yearbook that would capture what they felt set Gulliver Prep apart from other schools – academics, service and community. The book’s theme, “At the Heart of It,” represented the staff’s attempt to show not just the surface, but also the core of their school. The drawing on the cover, done by Huang, set the tone for the book’s entire look, which featured a soft color palette and airy feel. The chronological coverage wasn’t afraid to make use of large, bold photos that showed off Gulliver Prep’s unique spirit.

    All around J.W. Mitchell High School, things changed during the 2017-18 school year. New classes, new businesses in the community, new activities – it all added up to an opportunity for Mitchell students to create a unique year. The theme “What You Make It” allowed the editors to get creative with the design, using multiple colors and headline fonts. The coverage was organized traditionally with each section represented by a different color. One of the fonts, Knucklebones, provided a paintbrush-stroke effect that was a key design element.

    Walsworth representative: Katie Smith
    Award: CSPA Silver Crown

    When the editors of the 2018 Olympian got their chance at creating the book to memorialize the year at their school, the story they chose to tell centered around the togetherness of their school community. The theme “One North” put the emphasis on unity and was a play on the popular “One Buffalo” slogan used by the nearby city. But while the theme focused on unity, the book also showcased the unique individuals and groups who stood out from the crowd in this special year.

    The 2018 edition of the Indian centered on the idea that “there’s always something to be said” about what’s going on at Shawnee Mission North. You just have to be paying attention and listening, which the Indian staff certainly did. The theme was all about how “people are talking” about North, and this was illustrated throughout the coverage with quotes upon quotes from students and teachers, frequently in fun graphics.

    As the subhead states right on the cover of the 2018 Hauberk, “the reaction makes the moment.” Great yearbooks are full of memorable moments captured, and the staff for the 60th edition for the Hauberk did just that. The coverage backed up the theme by relying heavily on amazing candid photography, which captured wonderful reactions and direct student quotes. A special gatefold section in the middle of the book showed how student trends have changed on a variety of topics over the past 60 years.

    The Hagerty staff crafted a very straightforward story for the 2018 Fusion, reliving many of the year’s personal, memorable moments in the opening copy and telling the readers “Here’s What We’re Gonna Do.” The staff designed three different versions of the cover – green, red and blue – each one bright and vivid with phrases from the year silk screened into the background. The book’s chronological coverage was easy to follow, month by month, and a particular highlight was the sidebars and timelines that added extra touches to spreads.

    During the 2018 school year, Hinsdale Central students “spoke with voices louder than ever before” according to the book’s editors. That’s the story the 2018 El Diablo captured – one that shared the voices of their students. The staff did this in a variety of ways – speech bubbles, pull quotes, red (the school color) on every page. The 2018 El Diablo was also a 75th anniversary book, so the staff added pops of nostalgia throughout with the use of old, black and white archival photos in fun “Then vs. Now” graphics.

    Award: CSPA Silver Crown

    Creation of the 2018 Hilsborean was a long, personal journey for the editors and staff, with planning starting over a calendar year before final delivery. After several iterations of a theme phrase, “They’re Gonna Know” stuck because it represented the voice of Hillsborough students and the power it carried. The school colors, red and black, are the dominant colors used throughout the book, especially on the four-color matte lamination cover, which is so red it almost seemed to drip with red ink. The book’s chronological coverage keyed in on all the impactful events of the year, including the rivalry football game that was featured on local TV’s game of the week and the clean-up after Hurricane Irma passed through the area.

    For Gresham High School’s community, the 2018 school year was the beginning of a transition process that will culminate with the construction of a new school to be completed by 2020. In the meantime, the atmosphere in the air was one of “anticipation,” and the Munhinotu staff did a wonderful job of telling that story. The coverage is chronological and features a mixture of stories that highlighted historical accomplishments and looked to the future. Each division page included a countdown to the ground-breaking on the new school, a nice touch that tied back to the theme.

    Walsworth representative: Brian Flamm
    Award: NSPA Pacemaker Finalist

    The 2018 Apollo exudes confidence, starting right on the cover with the book’s catchy theme phrase. As the editors wrote in the colophon, Colonial Forge students feel like “our worst is better than another’s best.” Green and black are two of the school colors and they are used predominantly everywhere. The use of frequent black backgrounds is uncommon, but the staff pulled it off well. The coverage is organized in traditional sections and is filled with stories and quote boxes from students and teachers striving to be great.

    Award: CSPA Gold Crown

    Editors of the 2018 Aerie began planning and selecting their theme, “As One,” in April 2017, nearly a full year before tragic events impacted the school on Valentine’s Day 2018. While the community’s response to the tragedy poignantly proved the book’s theme correct, the 2018 Aerie did an outstanding job of covering the entire year at Stoneman Douglas. Three versions of the cover were created - with green, purple and red lettering. While plenty of serious topics were covered, the book doesn’t overwhelm. The white backgrounds and muted color palette help the reader ease through the story of an unforgettable year.

    Award: NSPA Pacemaker

    The theme of the 2018 Lair centered on the idea of getting “lost” in a busy high school year, and the Northwest staff did a beautiful job expressing those ideas in their book. The effects and images on the cover are the beginning of the swept away feeling, and that same washed away look appears on other theme spreads. The story-driven coverage of The Lair stands out with excellent writing and several “show-stopper” spreads that makes the reader take notice.

    With the 2018 Retrospect, the Liberty Christian Academy staff embraced the opportunity to create a yearbook celebrating the school’s 50th anniversary (although just the 49th edition of the book). Anniversary books are sometimes a challenge, but in this edition, the staff expertly wove together archival photos of LCA’s history with beautifully told stories and designed spreads from the current school year. The design is clean and easy on the eyes with ample use of white space, and the coverage keeps the focus on the faith and devotion of LCA students.

While the staff wasn’t afraid to tackle issues, such as students coping with stress, they emphasized light-hearted fare, such as a spread on 37 students in the school who all share the same last name.

    High school represents a time when students often start to strive for “bigger and better dreams” despite “uncertain futures.” At least that was the idea behind the 2018 Panther, according to the editor’s colophon note. The book has a light, airy feel, thanks mostly to the elegant white linen cover and ample use of white space on most of the spreads. The chronological coverage hit all the memorable events of the year, but also took time to feature students who accomplished the unexpected.
