Dos Pueblos Earns Jostens National Yearbook Design Recognition

Dos Pueblos High School’s yearbook, The Image, 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 well­crafted yearbooks play in helping schools chronicle the experiences, stories and achievements most relevant to students and that academic year.

The 2016 Image was created by 30 students with co-editor in chiefs, Jenny Jang and Trent Toyama, under the direction of adviser John Dent.

“I am so proud that our book has been highlighted at the front of the Look Book again. Only 25 books from across the country are given as much recognition.”

The Dos Pueblos yearbook was one of only 494 yearbooks selected from approximately 3,000. The 2016 panel of judges, comprising nationally recognized scholastic journalism professionals and award­winning 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.”

Dent and his yearbook staff received a copy of the 2016 Jostens Look Book and certificate from Jostens to recognize their outstanding achievement. 

This is the 9th year in a row that the DP yearbook has been in the Look Book. Dos Pueblos High School yearbook program has earned national recognition for design, photography, writing and coverage, winning Gold Crowns from Columbia University and being named a Pacemaker finalist from National Scholastic Press Association.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
