Yearbook and Student Media Workshops
A Virtual Yearbook Event for an Uncertain Time
During this crazy and uncertain time, we are very excited to present you with the Walsworth National Virtual Workshop – an opportunity for your school to participate in a LIVE workshop experience to get your 2021 yearbook off to the right start.
The workshop will be presented live from July 13-15 via GoToWebinar! Our goal is to present sessions that will inspire and educate. In order to accomplish that, we have recruited more than 25 top instructors from the journalism and yearbook world.
This workshop will have something for everyone – beginner to advanced, first year student to returning editor. Students will be encouraged to work on a theme packet and will have access to training in theme, coverage, design, trends, photography and even some technology. There will also be three sessions specifically geared toward middle schools!
July 13-15, beginning Noon Eastern / 11 a.m. Central / 9 a.m. Pacific
We are offering this free to all schools, but registration is limited
Registrants will attend via GoToWebinar
Participants will receive a PDF of Walsworth's 2021 Workshop Workbook and a Study Guide PDF with handouts for each session
Recording links will be made available for registrants to review sessions they missed or just want to see again!

“Camp is such an incredible experience to bond with your leaders and prepare for the year. Without it, the beginning of the year would be a scramble. It’s also a great opportunity to see what other schools are doing. Who knows what other ideas you can get!”
