Friesens Corporation is proud to be the printer of choice for the National Scholastic Press Association, including the Best of the High School Press awards annual, a showcase for incredible student journalism and yearbooks produced by NSPA members. As the industry continues to change and evolve, it’s awesome to see that creative design by great students is growing, and every year the quality of work produced by dedicated and passionate students is outstanding.
We encourage you to look through the book and get inspired! See how award-winning yearbooks tackle font pairings, layouts, spreads, and photographs to create a dynamic and memorable book. Explore covers that tell a story before you even open the yearbook.
Your school may not strive to win an NSPA Pacemaker Award, but if you’re on the lookout for new ideas and trends for your book, the NSPA Best of the High School Press book is a wonderful place to start (be sure to check out page 36…we love the layout of the standout athletes from Glenbrook South High School in Illinois!).
The best part is, Friesens can help you build and grow your yearbook so that it can be a true representation of the uniqueness of your school. Tell us what has inspired you in the Best of the High School Press book, and we can work with you to achieve it. You can also find many of the award-winning layout templates in DesignIt, so you can replicate the look yourself!
If you haven’t yet received a copy of the book, be sure to reach out to your Print Sales Consultant and they can hook you up!
