2015 Yearbook Pacemaker finalists announced

MINNEAPOLIS – The National Scholastic Press Association is thrilled to announce the 2015 finalists in the Yearbook Pacemaker competition. Overall, what separated the finalists books from the rest was clean designs, strong photography and comprehensive coverage of local and national trends. The selected publications also had clever and solid themes that developed both visually and verbally throughout the book.

A team of judges comprised of experienced journalism professionals and educators chose finalists from five categories that totaled 367 entries. From these entries, 89 were selected as finalists. NSPA congratulates all finalists in this step towards winning scholastic journalism’s most prestigious award, the Pacemaker.

Pacemaker winners will be announced at the JEA/NSPA Spring National High School Journalism Convention, April 14-17, 2016 in Los Angeles, CA.
