There’s still time to enter the yearbook cover contest! Students are invited to submit original artwork to a contest to choose the cover for this year’s JMS Yearbook. The yearbook theme for the 2020-2021 book is Welcome to the New Normal. The contest winner’s work will appear on the front cover and wrap around on the back cover, so size/proportion accordingly. Entries are due to Ms. Kehrli (Room 516) by Friday, October 16 and will be judged based on creative interpretation of the theme and originality. Use any 2-dimensional media (photography, drawing, painting, collage, digital art, etc.). Entries not selected for the cover may be included inside the book to showcase student creativity. Questions? Ask Ms. Kehrli, Mr. Kirkholm, or Ms. James.
