  • Kaboom!: La Loma Yearbook pages featured in 2013 Gotcha Covered Look Book

Los Alamos High School’s yearbook, Kaboom!: La Loma Yearbook, has been recognized for excellence and featured in the 2013 Gotcha Covered Look Book, Volume 11 celebrating the best-of-the-best in yearbook design and coverage.

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 Kaboom!: La Loma Yearbook was created by the 2011-2012 Yearbook staff under the direction of Michelle Holland, Los Alamos High School yearbook adviser.

Her reaction to this honor:

“The best aspect of yearbook is not just the cake, it’s the ingenuity and creativity of an enthusiastic staff of students.” 

The Los Alamos High School Kaboom!: La Loma Yearbook was one of only 425 yearbooks selected from approximately 3,000.

The 2013 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 2013 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 425 yearbooks selected for the 2013 Gotcha Covered Look Book,” Editor John Dalke said. “Today’s yearbooks are very sophisticated in terms of visual presentation and the relevant and inclusive content that is featured.”

Michelle Holland and her yearbook staff received a copy of Jostens 2013 Gotcha Covered Look Book and a plaque from Jostens to recognize their outstanding achievement. 

Jostens Gotcha Covered Look Book is a must-have resource for yearbook advisers and staffs seeking creative design and coverage ideas, trends and inspiration.
