  • Virtual Yearbook Signing Opportunity

    "We know how important the tradition of yearbook signing is. It’s that special time when you celebrate the end of another year and remind your friends how special they are to you – that you can’t wait to see them over the summer and at school next year.

    COVID-19 doesn’t change that – we need to celebrate now more than ever, and we REALLY can’t wait to see our friends. That's why [Walsworth] partnered with Kudoboard™ to make it possible. Now you can have a virtual yearbook signing.

    Kudoboard lets you make online boards that your friends can sign with messages and photos, and you can stay six feet apart the whole time. Just text, email or share your link on social media with your friends. When you’re done, save your board as a hi-res JPEG you can keep digitally or print to place inside your yearbook. It’s as easy as that.

    We know this doesn’t replace getting your friends to sign your yearbook in person, but until that happens, sign each other's yearbooks virtually!" (text from Walsworth)
