The Ward Melville staff enjoys their new Flipcam from Walsworth.

It pays to take part in Walsworth’s booth promotions at the JEA/NSPA conventions. All you have to do is ask the yearbook staff at Ward Melville High School in East Setauket, New York.

The Ward Melville group attended the most recent Fall National High School Journalism convention held in Kansas City in November and took part in Walsworth’s Passport promotion at the booth.

For using the Passport and taking a tour of the booth, Ward Melville got entered into a drawing to win a Flipcam. A few weeks later, they won the drawing and received their Flipcam shortly after that.

As the photo shows, the staff is already making good use of their new camera. Congrats and enjoy!
