Woodsville High School Earns Jostens National Yearbook Design Recognition!

The Engineer yearbook featured in 2019 Jostens Look Book 


WOODSVILLE – March 18, 2020 – Woodsville High School’s yearbook, The Engineer, has been recognized for excellence and featured in the 2019 Jostens Look Book, celebrating the best-of-the-best in yearbook design and coverage. The Jostens Look Book is a collection of spreads and photos from outstanding yearbooks and their creative themes, cool covers, beautiful designs, relevant coverage, meaningful storytelling and stunning 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 Engineer was created by Maud McIntyre, Mikayla Hudson, Taylor Brown, Sierra Norko, Ethan Dessaint, and Sam Powell under the direction of Ashley Youngheim, WHS yearbook adviser.


“Being recognized in the Look Book was a goal, and a little bit of a dream, for us in 2019. Every day I would remind the staff that we were going to make the Look Book no matter what! I’m ecstatic that our hard work paid off and that we represented Woodsville as a top-school for student publications.” 


The WHS Engineer was one of only 387 yearbooks selected from over 2,000 yearbooks submitted. The 2019 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 320-page 2019 Look Book.


“The Jostens Look Book showcases the hard work and dedication of students who tell the story of the school year through photos and words. It is their collaboration and communication, as well as creative thinking in challenging situations, that results in the fine designs shown in this book,” said Sara Sausker, Senior Manager of Customer Experience. “We are very proud to celebrate the ability of this country’s future leaders and communicators by showcasing their sophisticated designs and photography.”


Ashley Youngheim and her yearbook staff received a copy of the 2019 Jostens Look Book and plaque from Jostens to recognize their outstanding achievement.  


The Jostens Look Book is a must-have resource for yearbook advisers and staffs seeking creative design and coverage ideas, trends and inspiration. The Look Book complements www.YearbookAvenue.com and www.facebook.com/JostensAdviserandStaff, Jostens online destinations for yearbook creation ideas.
