Yearbook Wins Again!

The Chaparral Yearbook staff just received the critique from NSPA (National Scholastic Press Association). Chaparral received an All-American Honor Rating. This is Phenomenal. Only 3% of yearbooks get this rating. Its the highest rank possible. The 2014-15 yearbook received 4,580 points which is 110 points below a perfect score.  You have to get 3,700 points to get All-American. They received 5 marks of distinction out of 5 categories. 

The Judge's Summary Comments:
"Congratulations on achieving an All-American rating with five marks of distinction.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading and critiquing the 2015 "Golden Images."  Its theme, "look UP" was creative and engaging.  You and your fine staff showed true dedication and produced a first-class publication.  Theme ingenuity, diverse topic coverage and photography approaches topped the list of your journalism skills."

Previously, the 2014-15 Yearbook received an All-Colorado rathing from the Colorado High School Press Association. Again, the highest award possible.

Congratulations to the CHS Yearbook Staff!
