Chaparral Receives Top Yearbook Award by the National Scholastic Press Association

PARKER- The National Scholastic Press Association (NSPA) announced that the Chaparral High School Yearbook staff has received received an All-American Honor Rating for its 2014-15 yearbook. This is the highest rank possible and an honor that is received by only 3 percent of submissions, which come from all over the U.S. and Canada. This is the second year in a row that Chapparal has received an award by NSPA.

The judges made the following comments to the Chapparal Yearbook team:

"Congratulations on achieving an All-American rating with five marks of distinction.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading and critiquing the 2015 "Golden Images."  Its theme, "look UP" was creative and engaging.  You and your fine staff showed true dedication and produced a first-class publication.  Theme ingenuity, diverse topic coverage and photography approaches topped the list of your journalism skills."

Previously, the 2014-15 Yearbook received an All-Colorado rating from the Colorado High School Press Association. Again, the highest award possible.

Congratulations to the CHS Yearbook Staff!
