I have a fabulous group of junior high students who are creative, artistic, and love working on projects. They have a love of photography and capturing memories for others to enjoy.
My students had to apply to become a member of the yearbook staff at our school.
They are willing to stay after school once a week for the entire school year in order to create a yearbook that their peers will love. These students put in hours of their own time taking photos, attending after school activities such as sports and band concerts. Then many more hours putting together creative yearbook spreads of their friends and teachers. It is fun to see the excitement, joy and pride on their faces when the final pages come together after hours of work.
I am the junior high yearbook adviser and work with a group of super creative students. For the past two years, the yearbook staff has been taking photos for the yearbook on their cell phones. Although this has worked, the picture quality isn't top notch, and the students aren't learning about the true art of photography.
I would love to be able to purchase two cameras for the junior high yearbook staff to use.
The students would be able to sign out the cameras to photograph sporting events, band concerts, after school clubs, and much more! They would also be able to have some after school lessons on shooting photos.
Not only will the cameras benefit the yearbook staff, but it will help to create a memorable yearbook that the entire student body can enjoy.
