Keithley staff wants you to know, If you bought a yearbook…

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Adviser Bevan Elliott and the yearbook staff at Keithley Middle School in Tacoma, Wash., tried a pretty simple approach with their video for Walsworth’s 2012 Video Contest. They decided to do a yearbook version of a Justin Bieber song.

Channeling Biebs seems like a pretty safe bet when making a video to appeal to a middle school crowd.

You can watch the clip below, then you can vote for Keithley’s “If You Bought a Yearbook” over at Walsworth’s Facebook page by giving it a Like. The video contest runs until Nov. 19, and winners will be selected by a committee of judges based on the following criteria: message and appropriateness to theme, creativity, entertainment value, viral nature as determined by the number of video Likes on Facebook and technical prowess.
