With hundreds of students filing through one location in one day, Picture Day is the perfect opportunity to snag some extra coverage for the yearbook.
Just think — in one day, you could knock out all of the people section coverage. It’s an ideal way to ensure you get other kids in the book — the ones not involved in clubs and sports. You could:
- Ask poll questions
- Ask questions for fun sidebars and secondary coverage
- Take candid pictures
- Take fun mugs for sidebars
It’s also an opportunity for the yearbook staff and the Journalism students to hone their interviewing skills. And it’s a great chance for photographers and photojournalism classes to capture the day and snap profile shots and mugs.
