Kabekonian yearbook recognized among the top 35 in the nation

May 03, 2017

Stillwater Area High School’s Kabekonian yearbook has been recognized as of the top 35 in the nation by Jostens. The Kab is featured in the 2017 Jostens Look Book with its own 2-page spread. The publication celebrates the best-of-the-best in yearbook design and coverage. The Kabekonian has been featured in the book every year since 2001. 

The Look Book includes 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 2016 Kabekonian was created by yearbook staff members under the direction of advisor Laurie Hansen and last year’s Editor-in-Chief Courtney Whalen (Class of 2016). Three team leaders are now the Editors-in-Chief of the upcoming edition: seniors Nafiza Hassan, Abby Abrahamson and Alyssa Woodward.

The SAHS Kabekonian was one of only 418 yearbooks selected from approximately 3,000. The 2017 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 296-page 2017 Look Book.
