YEARBOOK CONTEST

 

Yearbooks are not judged by size of club or community. The committee has made an effort to list definite features for evaluation. The point scale is subject to change without due notice. If clubs choose to print yearbooks for a two-year administration to save printing, they may do so, submitting the book annually for judging - loose leaf acceptable.
