We strongly encourage you to have the

interest in the yearbook.
Because we need to receive your cover by February 15th, be sure
to allow enough time for students to create and submit their
designs and for your committee to choose the winning cover. If
you send us the original artwork, we will scan it here. If you
scan your own artwork, please scan it for 8.5"x11" at 300dpi.
