dc.description.abstract A review of of literature found little research about yearbooks as journalistic publications. A purpose of this study was to investigate whether journalistically-sound yearbooks are perceived as springboards to professional media careers or if they are seen as merely memory books of little substance. Also, this study revealed general information about editors (not necessarily editors-in-chief) of award-winning yearbooks. (National awards from Columbia Scholastic Press Association and Associated Collegiate Press that pertain to editorial content, photo-journalistic work and visual design were the basis for books to be considered "journalistically-sound" and "award-winning.")The following research questions were the basis of the survey and their responses are included in this report:1.Positions held on yearbook staff and respective years2.Majors earned at respective college indicating major are....3.Would you consider your degree media related?4.How did you first become involved in your college yearbook?
