There’s even more yearbook terms where Includitude came from

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Hopefully by now you’ve heard about Includitude, Walsworth’s theme for this school year. If not, you can learn a little bit more about it over in the Idea File area.

Yearbook staffs who attended a Walsworth workshop this summer likely got an early start at learning the concept of Includitude and how to bring it to their book.

At the Northwest Workshop a few weeks ago in Tacoma, Wash., Walsworth Area Sales Manager Howard Dusek asked yearbook staffs to come up with their own yearbook term and definition and present it during a general session. Here’s what they came up with. Needless to say, all of us at the Yearbooks Blog love the creativity!

  • Priturkable – Pride, proud, Turks (school mascot), respectable
  • Enthusitivity – The act of enthusiastically being creative
  • Insanitude – The insanity of your adviser sending you by yourself to workshop and having a positive attitude about it
  • Craziture – Capturing the crazy at your school
