Has your yearbook staff ever considered organizing a photo contest? If not, it could be time to give the idea a try.
A photo contest is a great way to get students interested in, and actively involved with, the yearbook by submitting photos for consideration to be used in the book. A contest can even be structured so that the winner gets a free yearbook.
That’s exactly what they’re doing at Fallston High School. The staff already held its first photo contest this year, which was themed “What I did this summer” and they would like to have more.
Has your yearbook staff tried the idea of a photo contest? What ideas do you have for photo contest themes?
