Cool Cameras for Cool Kids

Help me give my students cameras to shoot quality photos for the yearbook.

My Students

The students at our high school bring their own unique qualities and talents each and every day with them. They are incredibly hardworking, artistic, and excited to engage in learning. The unique talents and diversity of the student population shows through in every activity and task they take on.

They are clever, creative, talented, kind, and deserve quality education and resources to reach their full potential.

My yearbook students are incredibly dedicated to creating a wonderful yearbook. Memories fade but moments are forever. Help the yearbook class create amazing memories and document the moments that will be the building blocks of their forever.

My Project

Currently our students do not have access to cameras for creating the yearbook. They have been relying on cameras that were lent to them by previous members of the yearbook committee.

Due to wear and tear, those cameras will no longer be available, leaving us in a bind with a massive undertaking and a lack of resources and supplies.

Unfortunately while camera quality in cell phones has come a long way, the resolution and quality of cell phone pictures are not high enough to be used in the yearbook. My students are incredibly dedicated and wish to create a yearbook that is on par with the amazing artwork that comes out of our school.

Only four students are able to participate in creating the yearbook that will serve the 750 students in the senior class. We need all the help that we can get.
