TreeRing Announces Four Winners of the #TreeRingMemoriesMatter Challenge


TreeRing Announces Four Winners of the #TreeRingMemoriesMatter Challenge

San Mateo, Calif.: Today, TreeRing is pleased to announce the winners of our #TreeRingMemoriesMatter challenge. Yearbook editors from across the US submitted their favorite yearbook spreads from the 20-21 school year.


First, we want to send a big thank you to everyone who participated in our challenge and helped make it a success.


“This inaugural challenge was prompted by our empathy for our yearbook editors this year,” said Kristina Cruz, Head of Marketing, TreeRing. “Preserving our children’s memories is so important and this year it was even more so from a journalistic standpoint. Given the various COVID safety protocols in schools, parent volunteer’s and teacher’s work was made even more challenging. We wanted to celebrate these editors’ hard work as well as their student’s memories.”  


A special congratulations to:


First Place: Lois Lenski Elementary in Centennial, Colorado

$100 Amazon Gift Card, 10 Free Yearbooks for their School, & An Art Block of their Spread


Their yearbook spread was not only beautifully designed but did a great job representing the uniqueness of how their community decided to celebrate Valentine’s Day. What other year would our pets make the yearbook?



Second Place: Del Norte Heights Elementary in El Paso, Texas

$50 Amazon Gift Card, 5 Free Yearbooks for their School, & An Art Block of their Spread


As facemasks became the new normal to attend school, the stylish covering became the norm. The photos of those “fashionable facemasks” captured the beauty of each child’s personality, and this spread captures the year beautifully.


Tied for Third Place: Plumas Charter School in Quincy, California

$25 Amazon Gift Card, 3 Free Yearbooks for their School, & An Art Block of their Spread


Laid out and designed beautifully, this yearbook spread does an extremely honest and thoughtful job covering the wildfires, and how the community came together to “weather the storm.”



Tied for Third Place: Pelham High School in Pelham New Hampshire

$25 Amazon Gift Card, 3 Free Yearbooks for their School, & An Art Block of their Spread


This verbal and visual spread encompasses the health and safety measures that had to be followed to be in school along with a timeline of events. These “Pythons in a pandemic” will be grateful to see this honest reporting of their school experiences this year for years to come.
