Level Up your National Yearbook Week celebrations with Walsworth!

Written by Aimee Parsons

It’s National Yearbook Week, aka the best week of the year!

If you are a newbie, you might be asking yourself, what in the world is National Yearbook Week? So, let’s start with the back story. In 1987, President Ronald Reagan declared the week of Oct. 4 each year as “National Yearbook Week.”

Most holidays are a single day, but because yearbooks are so awesome, they get a whole week! Since Oct. 4 doesn’t always start on Monday, we decided to get the most out of this amazing week and celebrate it the first full week of October every year! This year, it starts Oct. 7.

This is our favorite week each year because it’s basically a big spirit week for yearbooks. It’s your chance to tell the world why you love being a yearbooker and to really promote the amazing publication you work so hard on all year long. We’ve been busy making celebration plans [and memes] in honor of this glorious week and we want you to join in on all the fun!
