Having fun, memorable pages in a yearbook can make the difference between the same old yearbook and something that alumni will be proud to show off for years to come. Creating yearbook pages is a creative and challenging task. With a little brainstorming and some great ideas, you can create the best yearbook yet.
Getting creative with a standby like the award page makes it brand new all over again. Some fun ideas for award pages that will change it up are: most useless information of the year; most likely to marry a millionaire; and most likely to be the crazy cat lady, just to name a few. Taking pictures of the recipients with a trophy or even dressed the part of the award makes the page even better. For example, if a student is being rewarded for most likely to become the crazy cat lady, take a picture of her in a robe and hair rollers while feeding a bunch of cats. If you use photo editing software, this can be done without getting the person in costume with props.
Most yearbooks are full of signatures from fellow students and teachers. To bump it up a notch, you could have special pages just for autographs and signatures that include spaces for emails and phone numbers so the students can keep in touch as they move on in life.
Create a page or two of items that were popular during that year. A time capsule page for the Class of 2011 might feature pictures of an iPad, dance video game, the latest cell phone or flip camera. Include how much different everyday items cost during that year, such as a loaf of bread, a gallon of gas and a mid-sized sedan. These pages will be fun to look back on when these students are colonizing the moon.
Baby or preschool pictures next to current pictures are always fun to look at. Add a twist and include what each student wanted to be as a youngster and what they are now striving for or are receiving a degree in. For example, you could focus on a boy who wanted to be a superhero and is now striving to be a police officer. These pages will be entertaining to look back on later in life when each person's career is in full swing.
