Black River Falls High School’s yearbook, Breeze, has been recognized for excellence and featured in the 2018 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 2017 Breeze was created by a team led by Sydney Sampson-Webb, Editor-in-Chief; Abby Ross, Sports Editor; Bailee Ciezki, Weeks Editor; Katlyn Leadholm, Photo Editor; Caitlin Smart, Photo Editor; and Olivia Hefty, Clubs Editor under the direction of Julie Tiedens, Black River Falls High School yearbook adviser.
“The core editing staff from the 2017 Breeze is an amazing group of individuals who bring a wide skill set to our staff. They have worked hard to create a record of the year, and the 2017 book shows the results,” said Tiedens.
The Black River Falls High School Breeze was one of only 413 yearbooks selected from approximately 2,000 entries. The 2018 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 304-page 2018 Look Book.
“The Jostens Look Book showcases the hard work and dedication of students who tell the story of the school year through photos and words. It is their collaboration and communication, as well as creative thinking in challenging situations, that results in the fine designs shown in this book,” said Sara Sausker, Senior Manager of Customer Experience. “We are very proud to celebrate the ability of this country’s future leaders and communicators by showcasing their sophisticated designs and photography.”
