LEONARDTOWN, Md. (July 30, 2008)—Best in Show honors were awarded to the Chopticon High School yearbook staff for the second straight year at the annual Jostens Yearbook Workshop at Gettysburg College, held July 27-29. The work shop, which is comprised of informational seminars and staff planning sessions, was attended by almost 60 schools from 5 states and DC.
The students produced a design concept presentation, which was judged by industry experts. The students presentation MOMENTUM was rewarded with the top prize for the workshop.
This is not the first time the student produced publication, The Chopticonian, has been honored. In addition to last year's Best in Show Award, previous yearbooks have achieved top theme concept honors in 2007 and Best in Show for 2005. The Chopticonian has also received several silver and bronze awards from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association.
