In order to produce a quality yearbook, students must first take photographs to be used in the publication. The mini-grant was used to purchase a new camera that students have used to take pictures and edit through our online program. Students are learning photo techniques and photo-composition. They are also developing an appreciation for demonstrating journalistic principles. Project objectives are: develop the concept of the yearbook; understand how a yearbook theme keeps consistency and flow within the yearbook; meet original deadlines and proof deadlines; collect payments and keep records of sales & expenses; participate in fundraising activities; and deliver the yearbook to the staff and students on time.
