Technology will take center stage in Walsworth booth at Orlando JEA/NSPA

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Attendees at next month’s JEA/NSPA Fall National High School Journalism Convention in Orlando won’t be able to miss Walsworth Yearbooks.

The convention, which will run Nov. 12-15, is expected to attract hundreds of yearbooks staffs from all over the country to Disney World’s Dolphin hotel.

The Walsworth Yearbooks booth will be eye-catching on the exhibit floor the first two days of the convention, Nov. 12-13. It will feature a wall of monitors, with an 80-inch flat-screen monitor flanked by 12 24-inch monitors showing video highlights of Online Design 2016, InDesign Creative Cloud Enhancements and yearbookhelp.com.

Demos of Online Design 2016 and Yearbook 3D will take place in the booth, and Walsworth Journalism Specialist Mike Taylor will be consulting with yearbook staffs in the “Ask Mike” area. As always, advisers and students will also have space to relax and browse through yearbooks.

Advisers who view any of the demos or meet with Taylor can enter into drawings to win one of two Chromebooks or two Wacom artist tablets.

Walsworth Yearbooks will also be sponsoring the convention’s tote bag, which will be received by every adviser attending the show.

If you will be headed to the convention in Orlando, let us know about it in the comments below. And be sure to follow along in the blog and all of the Walsworth Yearbooks social media sites the week of the convention for updates! On our Twitter and Facebook pages, we’ll be using #nhsjc, #walsworth and #askmike.
