Bailyn Amos

A Klamath Union student was named the winner of a nationwide yearbook contest.

Senior Bailyn Amos was nominated by media design teacher Daniel Stearns for being dedicated to the yearbook, being an amazing leader and motivating the other students.

TreeRing, a digitally produced, published-on-demand yearbook company for K-12 schools, called on all its schools’ parents, teachers and students to nominate yearbook heroes in this first ever contest.

The school earned a $100 Amazon gift card and 10 free yearbooks for this recognition.

The high school winners are:

• 1st place: Klamath Union High School - Klamath Falls

• 2nd place: Shalhevet Girls High School - Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

• 3rd place: Niles McKinley High School - Niles, Ohio

This is TreeRing’s first year hosting this contest, which was created to celebrate yearbook heroes in our halls and in our homes. Judging for the contest was based on the speaker’s clarity and storytelling ability about why their yearbook hero should be chosen.
