Varsity Brands is Searching for the Most Spirited Yearbook

Varsity Brands is Searching for the Most Spirited Yearbook

The Varsity Brand School Spirit Awards opened on January 23 and include lots of categories that students, faculty and groups in your school could be eligible to win — including a new, and very special category named “Most Spirited Yearbook Award.” You know how it goes though — if you don’t play, you can’t win. But in this case, if you don’t enter, you can’t win. So what are you waiting for? The book your staff is slaving over right now could win an award even before the last deadline is submitted. Here’s what you need to know:

  • All entries must include a 500-word essay explaining why the nominee (the 2016-2017 yearbook and yearbook staff) is deserving of the award.  
  • A letter of recommendation is also required from a principal, administrator or community leader.
  • Two photos of the nominee and their work
  • Optional: links to additional media (including but not limited to press releases, videos, photos, articles, etc.)

Here is an official description and additional, specific requirements:

The most memorable school yearbooks have a theme that sets it apart from other school years – a theme that captures the specific spirit and personality of that group of students. Themes based on school pride are perennial favorites. We’re looking for a pride-themed yearbook that publicly celebrates achievements large and small, group and individual contributions to the school.

  • Nominee must be a high school
  • Essay should include specific examples of school pride from the 2016 or 2017 yearbook
  • Nominee must upload up to 5 pages from the 2016 or 2017 yearbook

Your staff and the work you do deserves recognition. The deadline to enter is February 13 — good luck!


We inspire creativity, celebrate great yearbook design and marvel at the amazing storytelling capabilities of yearbook staffs near and far. BY YOUR SIDE.
