Oswego High School Yearbook Earns National Yearbook Design Recognition


OSWEGO, NY – The Paradox, the Oswego High School’s yearbook, has been recognized for excellence and featured in the 2015 Jostens Look Book, celebrating the best-of-the-best in yearbook design and coverage.

The 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.

“Yearbooks are unique, limited edition books created by students to capture the stories and events for all of the school’s students, and Jostens is proud to celebrate the yearbook tradition and the 476 yearbooks selected for the 2015 Jostens Look Book,” said Gary Lundgren, editor. “Today’s yearbooks are very sophisticated in terms of visual presentation and the relevant and inclusive content that is featured.”

The 2014 OHS yearbook was created by editor Brooke Broadwell and her staff under the direction of advisors Warren Shaw and Chris Mangano.

“Being recognized and included in the Look Book by Jostens is very gratifying, since they only include the best of the best nationally. I am proud of the entire 2014 yearbook staff for their hard work and dedication, as recognized by this achievement,” Shaw said.

The Paradox was one of only 476 yearbooks selected from approximately 3,000.

The 2015 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 344-page 2015 Look Book.

Oswego High School’s yearbook has been in continuous production for 91 years recording and reflecting the people and events of the current school year.

The book is completely designed and produced by students, and is annually recognized as one of the top books in New York State.

Paradox yearbook staff received a copy of the 2015 Jostens Look Book and certificate from Jostens to recognize their outstanding achievement.
