Jostens, the leading producer of yearbooks and student-created content, today announced that ConVal High School’s yearbook program has been named a 2016 Jostens’ National Yearbook Program of Excellence.
The National Yearbook Program of Excellence recognizes engaging yearbooks that reflect a broad representation of the student body while helping students develop 21st century skills such as communication, collaboration, and information and communication technologies (ICT) literacy.
The ConVal High School award winning yearbook program is led by Amanda Bastoni and Karrie Mitschmyer.
Jostens’ National Yearbook Program of Excellence Awards are presented twice a year, in spring and in fall for yearbooks delivered during the school year. The Award was presented to the ConVal High School yearbook program for achieving the defined criteria in each of three following categories: creating an inclusive yearbook, generating school engagement, and successfully managing the yearbook creation process.
“Yearbooks connect students’ hearts and minds to the school story, school year experiences, and the community to memorialize moments that matter. Jostens is proud to recognize yearbook staffs and advisers who create engaging yearbooks that tell the story of their school communities,” said Murad Velani, chief operating officer at Jostens.
“We understand that a great yearbook program does not just happen, and we are dedicated to helping schools, yearbook advisers and students to strengthen their programs by providing state of the art tools, resources and best practices that support the development and creation of award-winning yearbooks.”
The ConVal High School yearbook program will receive a plaque to display in the yearbook area and a banner to display in school so the entire school community will be aware of the outstanding achievement.
