The Blue Springs High School Campus Cadence yearbook staff recently won a marketing contest sponsored by Walsworth in honor of National Yearbook Week. The staff ran a two-week contest in which staff encouraged students to purchase a yearbook to get their names entered in a drawing to be included in the cover design. Out of 527 names, 50 were drawn to be worked into the “Infinite Possibilities” cover theme. Kailie Strom, marketing editor was largely responsible for the project and its submission and all yearbook staffers contributed to the theme and cover idea and worked shifts to sell books. A Walsworth yearbook representative presented the award and $100 gift certificate to the staff this week.
