Yearbook Superlatives & Surveys for the Unique 20-21 School Year

…When We’re ALL Most Likely to be Stuck at Home.

Surveying your students for the yearbook to uncover this years’ favorite trends, and voting on “best dressed” is a bit challenging this year. How do you know who was the best dressed when most people have had their cameras off all year? How can you ask your students what their favorite game in gym class was when gym class was remote?

To make things a bit easier–and hopefully get your creative juices flowing–we’ve created a list of yearbook ideas based on what we’ve heard from our thousands of yearbook editors. Not all of these will work for every school or every age group, but we hope this helps get you off to a good start to building the most memorable yearbook your students will ever receive.
