News Release

TERRE HAUTE — The Terre Haute South yearbook, Uaxactun, has been recognized for excellence and featured in the 2013 Gotcha Covered Look Book, Volume 11 celebrating the best-of-the-best in yearbook design and coverage. Jostens Look Book is a collection of spreads and photos from outstanding yearbooks and their creative themes, cool covers, dazzling designs, relevant coverage, storytelling copy and action-packed 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 Uaxactun was created by the 2012 Yearbook Team under the direction of Patrick Killeen, yearbook teacher, “I feel incredibly blessed to have the privilege to work with such amazing young people as we learn valuable life skills while producing memories that people will cherish for a lifetime.”

The Terre Haute South yearbook was one of only 425 yearbooks selected from approximately 3,000. The 2013 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 352-page 2013 Look Book.

“Yearbooks are unique, limited edition books created by students to capture the stories and events for all of the school’s students,” said John Dalke, editor. “Today’s yearbooks are very sophisticated in terms of visual presentation and the relevant and inclusive content that is featured.”

The Gotcha Covered Look Book is a resource for yearbook advisers and staffs seeking creative design and coverage ideas, trends and inspiration. Killeen and his yearbook staff received a copy of Jostens 2013 Gotcha Covered Look Book and plaque from Jostens to recognize their outstanding achievement.
