The 2nd Annual SNSJ Yearbook Contest ceremony was held on September 19th. 17 middle and high schools gathered at Rancho High School to celebrate and be recognized for their 2012-2013 edition of their yearbook.

311 entrees were received and 148 awards were distributed with the designations of “Honorable Mention,” “Excellent,” or “Superior.” Each publication was permitted to submit two entrees for each category.

The SNSJ would like to thank our event sponsors for donating door prizes: Herff-Jones, Picaboo, Jostens, Bernhard & Williams Photography, Bell Photography, King Putt Mini-Golf, Skyzone, Vegas Indoor Skydiving and Nevada JEA State Director Susan Thornton.
