The yearbook staff from Taylorville High School won $1,000 in the It's Worth It contest for selling 11 new pages of ads in 2010.

The Yearbooks Blog wants to offer a well-earned congratulations to the yearbook staffs from Coastal Christian High School, Taylorville High School and Rockingham County Middle School.

Those three staffs emerged as the winners from a group of more than 500 schools that entered this year’s contest to compete for three $1,000 prizes for being the staffs to show the highest increase in yearbooks sold, ad pages sold and yearbook options sold.

A check presentation ceremony already took place for the staff at Taylorville High in Taylorville, Ill., who won the ad pages category. Check ceremonies for the other two schools will take place in the coming weeks.
