Saint Thomas Aquinas Earns Jostens National Yearbook Design Recognition
2015 “Veritas” yearbook featured in 2016 Jostens Look Book
(Hammond, LA) – (March 21, 2016) – Saint Thomas Aquinas Regional Catholic High School’s yearbook, Veritas, has been recognized for excellence and featured in the 2016 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 2015 Veritas was created by the Publications I and II classes under the direction of Michelle Chauvin, STA yearbook adviser.
“This marks the third consecutive year our yearbook was featured in the Look Book,” said Chauvin. “It is such an exciting honor to have industry professionals recognize the hard-work and effort the students put in to create a yearbook that is as relevant to its audience at their 25-year reunion as it is on the day it’s published.”
The Saint Thomas Aquinas Veritas was one of only 494 yearbooks selected from approximately 3,000 submitted books. The 2016 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 320-page 2016 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 494 yearbooks selected for the 2016 Jostens Look Book, said Gary Lundgren, editor. “Today’s yearbooks are very sophisticated in terms of visual presentation and the relevant and inclusive content that is featured.”
Chauvin and her yearbook staff received a copy of the 2016 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.
