Yearbook staff hauls in awards

Maple Lake High School’s 2006 – 2007 yearbook editors made their annual trip to St. John’s University for the Taylor Publishing Camp they attended June 19 – 22. The trip was made possible through donations from the Maple Lake Lions and a scholarship from Taylor Publishing.

At camp, editors Sarah Latour, Andrea Rachel, Traci Erger, and Lindsey Becker got a jump start on the 2007 book. Latour and Rachel focused on the theme presentation of the book, creating cover and layout designs. Photo editor Traci Erger attended photography sessions, and computer editor Lindsey Becker attended sessions on how to use EliteVision, the yearbook’s computer program.

On Thursday, the final day of camp, an awards brunch was held to honor individuals and staffs for their work throughout the week. This year, Maple Lake brought home awards in every category of their work. Both Becker and Erger were named to honorable mention in their programs. Rachel received second place for her advanced layout design, and Latour received second place on her caption writing, third on copy writing, and third on advanced layout design.
