Greenwood High School’s yearbook, Bulldog, has been recognized for excellence and featured in the 2014 Jostens Look Book, celebrating the best-of-the-best in yearbook design and coverage. The Jostens Look Book is a collection of spreads and photos from outstanding yearbooks and their creative themes, cool covers, dazzling designs, relevant coverage, storytelling copy and action-packed photography. Along with design excellence, the annually published Look Book honors the important role well-crafted yearbooks play in helping schools chronicle the experiences, stories and achievements most relevant to students and that academic year.

The Bulldog was created by Sarah Hocott – Editor, Hope Hesslen – Co-Editor, Courtney Stockton – Co-Editor, Kenyon Walker, Nick Coleman, Baylee Whittington, Brock Rogers, Kylie Cleavenger, Emmi Childress, Hannah Hesslen, Crissa Johnson, and Haley Hickey under the direction of Kristin Aishman, Greenwood High School yearbook adviser.

“It is a true honor to have our yearbook nationally recognized for the fifth time,” commented Aishman. “My students work extremely hard all year to produce an awesome yearbook for Greenwood High School. It feels great to see their hard work rewarded. This is our version of a state championship!” Sarah Hocott, Editor of the 2014 Bulldog states, “When we began working on this yearbook, we knew we wanted to do something much different than previous years. We wanted to make it look professional and profound; we didn’t want people buying the book because it was a yearbook. We wanted to make this yearbook something people would actually read instead of just throwing on a shelf, and I am so excited that the staff accomplished this. It’s an absolute honor to know that the hard work that we put into this book has been recognized and awarded on a national level.”

The Greenwood High School Bulldog was one of only 426 yearbooks selected from approximately 3,000. The 2014 panel of judges, comprised of nationally recognized scholastic journalism professionals and award-winning yearbook advisers, selected the best examples of yearbook spreads and covers to make up the 352-page 2014 Look Book.

“Yearbooks are unique, limited edition books created by students to capture the stories and events for all of the school’s students and Jostens is proud to celebrate the yearbook tradition and the 426 yearbooks selected for the 2014 Jostens Look Book, said John Dalke, editor. “Today’s yearbooks are very sophisticated in terms of visual presentation and the relevant and inclusive content that is featured.”

Kristin Aishman and her yearbook staff received a copy of the 2014 Jostens Look Book and certificate from Jostens to recognize their outstanding achievement.

The Jostens Look Book is a must-have resource for yearbook advisers and staffs seeking creative design and coverage ideas, trends and inspiration. The Look Book complements www.YearbookAvenue.com and www.facebook.com/JostensAdviserandStaff, Jostens online destinations for yearbook creation ideas.
