Yearbook Story Ideas

NEED AN IDEA FOR A STORY?

Good yearbook stories feature content students will want to remember, but coming up with ideas for those stories isn’t always easy. We have provided some potential story ideas to help build your yearbook content.

SENIORS

  • College: applying – time and money involved, essays, visiting colleges
  • Graduation: graduating early, taking five or more years, gifts, traditions
  • 13 years: those seniors who have been in the district/school since their first day of kindergarten

UNDERCLASS

  • Best friends: how they met, when they’ve disagreed, what has kept them close
  • Practical jokes and fun
  • Siblings: at same school, twins

STUDENT LIFE

  • Amusement parks
  • Elections/political involvement
  • Environmental awareness
  • Fashion and trends
  • Favorite music
  • School rivalries

CLUBS and ORGANIZATIONS

  • If I could invent a club, it would be…
  • Interaction with local community
  • Best and most memorable service projects
  • Feature someone who has been in in the club all four years

SPORTS

  • College recruiting
  • Crosstown rivals
  • Local press coverage of school athletes
  • Sideline personnel: managers, trainers, waterboys, statisticians
  • Training outside of school

ACADEMICS

  • Long term projects: How do you approach them? When do you finish? Prefer or abhor them?
  • Test stories: AP, ACT, SAT successes and flops
  • Portfolios: students who must submit a collection of their work for a grade
