2020-2021 St. Mary Yearbook Photo and Poetry Competition

Posted On Wednesday March 17, 2021

Dear St. Mary Students, 

The time has come to begin the preparations of our 2020-2021 School Yearbook! We need YOU to enter the Yearbook Photo and Poetry Competition!! This Yearbook installment will reflect the heart and soul of our school -the people who gather here. We are asking students and staff to submit original photos and poetry to reflect any or all of the categories below.

  • Respecting Nature
  • Caring for Others
  • Celebrating Diversity
  • Mindfulness
  • Nurturing our Spiritual Life
  • Student Life at St. Mary
  • Landscape Art
  • Life in a Pandemic
  • Architectural Design
  • Student Work (ie., class projects - this can include photos of student artwork, 3D models or of a performance piece)

Photo and written submissions will be reviewed and judged on their relatability to the selected Category and on their appropriateness. Not all submissions will be published in the Yearbook, but it is our hope that we can have a wide variety of artwork that reflects our vibrant and active St. Mary community.

Original photos and poetry must be submitted directly to Mr. Joel Pisani via Edsby.
