Stanwood yearbook video recognizes multiple students

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Stanwood Middle School in Stanwood, Wash., is using the theme “Hello, My Name Is…” for this year’s book, with the goal of recognizing all their students.

That’s why the staff stuck with that theme when creating their entry for Walsworth’s 2012 Video Contest – a montage of images from their school mixed with yearbook theme graphics.

You can see the Stanwood video below, then vote for “Hello, My Name Is…” 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.
