See the updates to our President’s Collection Gallery!

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Each year, Walsworth Yearbooks is proud to honor those books that win national awards from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA), National Scholastic Press Association (NSPA) and Associated Collegiate Press (ACP) by inducting them into The President’s Collection.

This year’s Finalists have been named for the CSPA Crown Awards and the ACP and NSPA Pacemaker Awards for 2015 yearbooks, which has given us a chance to update our President’s Collection gallery in the Design Showcase.

You can visit the gallery now and see the cover and a sample of spreads from the following 2015 yearbooks:
