EL DORADO — Union Mine High School’s yearbook, the Rattler, has been recognized for excellence and featured in the 2013 Gotcha Covered Look Book, Volume 11, celebrating the best-of-the-best in yearbook design and coverage.

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. The yearbook cover and design received national recognition and attention while Samantha Prichard, yearbook editor, created the yearbook spread that earned a photo spot in the LookBook itself.

The Rattler was created by Yearbook Editors KC Kaku, Sam Prichard, Alex Personius, Anna Canales, Ben Gwerder and Michael Judd under the direction of Susan Sager, Union Mine High School yearbook adviser.

“Yearbook is a unique class that allows my students to problem-solve, think critically and creatively. The yearbook is designed from cover-to-cover by the students themselves. Not only should Sam be so proud of herself for her excellent eye for design and layout, but she is an excellent writer as well,” said yearbook adviser Susan Sager.

Union Mine High School’s Rattler was one of only 425 yearbooks selected from approximately 3,000. The 2013 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 2013 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 425 yearbooks selected for the 2013 Gotcha Covered Look Book, said John Dalke, editor. “Today’s yearbooks are very sophisticated in terms of visual presentation and the relevant and inclusive content that is featured.”

Susan Sager and her yearbook staff received a copy of Jostens 2013 Gotcha Covered Look Book and plaque from Jostens to recognize their outstanding achievement.

This is the second time in the past five years that Union Mine High School has made it into Josten’s LookBook.
