Yearbook Contests

'Tis the season for contests. Drawing contests could easily take up an entire year's worth of curriculum if you let them. I try to be very choosy about which contests we participate in, but there is one that most art teachers can't avoid. Yearbook Cover!

As an art teacher I can see the value in the yearbook cover. It's not going to hang in the hall for a week and get torn down. It's not being shipped out of state and we never ever hear back about who (if anyone) ever won.

So, I am totally down with yearbook cover contests. And as the yearbook advisor, this works out just fine for me! But in case you are NOT the yearbook advisor, here's a lesson plan to get you through the one contest your principal will not allow you to skip.
