Over 30 years ago, former President Ronald Reagan declared the first full week of October National Yearbook Week! Beginning on October 6, this week celebrates decades of memories treasured in every yearbook, and the dedication and creativity put into creating them. For your yearbook team, it’s the perfect excuse to take a small break and celebrate your hard work (pizza party, anyone?). You can also use this week as a unique time to promote your upcoming yearbook! Here are a few ways your team can celebrate National Yearbook Week:
The good old days
A photo contest can be a great option to allow every student in your school to contribute to your yearbook. Plus, you can collect more images to use! Announce a contest for the best photo that will make a star appearance in your yearbook. Maybe it’s an exploding experiment in science class, or the shot of a winning goal. Display the photo in your yearbook for all to see!
Your yearbook team rocks. Celebrate National Yearbook Week by throwing a staff ice cream social or pizza party in the theme that follows your yearbook! This week is a time to reflect on your progress and have fun.
