2017-18 WH Yearbook Application
Students that apply for the Yearbook class must realize that there are a limited number of spaces available for WHHS students. Admission will be based on the following criteria: success in previous courses, writing ability, unique abilities/talents/skills, creativity, faculty recommendations, the ability to make a commitment and follow through, the ability to stay focused and to work independently, and the the needs of the yearbook staff. If you are accepted into round 2, there will be a personal interview with current staff, that will include a writing sample(for writers), creating/designing your own one double page spread(all applicants), and photographers will show a portfolio demonstrating their abilities. Please answer every question in this form to the best of your ability. If the CLASS is not for you or doesn't fit into your schedule, you can still participate in the yearbook club or submit photos, stories, etc. Please e-mail or see Miss Noll for more details.
