Del Norte Heights Elementary Takes 2nd place in National Yearbook Contest
Officials with TreeRing announced Thursday that Ysleta ISD’s Del Norte Heights Elementary School took second place in the nationwide #TreeRingMemoriesMatter Challenge.
The 2nd place honor was awarded to the Del Norte Height’s staff for their yearbook spread celebrating a 2020-21 school year staple: fashionable face masks for socially distant learning.
Earlier this year, TreeRing – a digitally produced, published-on-demand yearbook company for K-12 schools – called on all its customers’ editors to send in a 2020-21 yearbook spread that shows the uniqueness of the year and students overcoming the challenges it’s brought for the #TreeRingMemoriesMatter Challenge.
After weeks of judging from a panel of TreeRing team members, the spread won the school a $50 Amazon gift card, 5 free yearbooks for their school, and an art block of their award-winning spread for display.
“Del Norte Heights couldn’t have predicted that their students would bring high fashion to the classroom via face masks this year. That’s why their submission to #TreeRingMemoriesMatter showed off all the amazing face mask designs that helped students learn safely and in style,” TreeRing officials shared via a news release.
