SchoolTube is pleased to announce our SchoolTube Yearbook Promotional Video Showcase. Yearbook committees are known to create some really fun and entertaining videos to promote the sale of their yearbooks. This showcase allows yearbook committees, teams, and their advisors to gain national recognition for their school, showcase their amazing work, and gain insights as to how other yearbook groups develop and market their yearbooks.
Participating yearbook promo videos must be submitted by a teacher/sponsor at their school. Please see below for all the rules and details.
SchoolTube will select exemplary yearbook promo videos and share them back will all participants as well as host them under the SchoolTube Yearbook Channel where your school can gain national recognition!
