This fall, Harmony submitted its yearbook into the Columbia Scholastic Press Association’s Crown Awards competition for the first time. The expert panel reviewed the 2017-18 “Revival” yearbook, and the staff received the honor of a gold medalist title, earning 872 out of 1,000 points for its verbal, visual, and reference content.
Creating an award-winning book is a Herculean task that the Harmony staff is fiercely proud of. The small-but-mighty group of dedicated students works tirelessly year-round to take photos, conduct interviews, write articles, design a concrete theme concept, advertise, document, and construct layouts.
Such a feat takes more than just the small class. The Harmony Yearbook crew also takes the form of a club of students who put in time after school every week to work towards the annual goal of completing the book.
The staff is always looking for new members of any interests, background, and availability. High school students are strongly encouraged to consider signing up to take the Yearbook Production course for either a semester or the entire year. Additionally, students are welcome to join the club any Wednesday in W1309 after school or by stopping into the classroom seventh hour any day.
Reminder: This year’s yearbook is still on sale via Jostens.com. The sooner you order, the lower the cost!
