YORKTOWN, N.Y. -- Yorktown High School's yearbook, The Emerald, earned a first-place award in the 2016 American Scholastic Press Association contest/review.

The annual publication is planned and produced by a group of students as part of YHS club led by advisers Benedetta Varotta and Daniel Moore.

Yorktown High School Principal Joseph DeGennaro praised the teachers and students for their creativity and efforts.

“The yearbook chronicles the school year and the many achievements of students, YHS clubs, athletes and artists,” he said, adding that “the leadership of our advisers and efforts by the students are outstanding and the annual final product reflects it. We are very proud of all of you.”

The ASPA explains that the “The quality of a school's publications and how they present themselves to their reading community is a guidepost to the quality of the publishing school. Many studies have shown that the school yearbook is the one single item most often saved by graduates and can be located by most people even ten years later.”
