LAHS News:

Los Alamos High School’s 2012-2013 La Loma yearbook, Begin Here, has been recognized for excellence and featured in the 2014 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.

Begin Here was created by the 2012-14 staff under the editorship of Darby Knoll and Ben Nguyen, and the direction of Michelle Holland, Los Alamos High School yearbook adviser.

“One of our main goals every year is to provide pages that reflect the energy and diversity of the entire student body,” Holland said. “The staff is always on the prowl for the pictures and stories that will reach as many individuals as possible.”

The Los Alamos High School La Loma yearbook, Begin Here, was one of only 426 yearbooks selected from approximately 3,000. The 2014 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 2014 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 426 yearbooks selected for the 2014 JostensLook 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.”

Holland and her yearbook staff received a copy of the 2014 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.
