The Jostens Look Book is a collection of spreads and photos from outstanding yearbooks and their creative themes, cool covers, dazzling designs, relevant coverage, storytelling copy and action-packed photography. Along with design excellence, the annually published Look Book honors the important role well-crafted yearbooks play in helping schools chronicle the experiences, stories and achievements most relevant to students and that academic year.

Ke Ānuenue was created by the Mid-Pacific yearbook staff and editors Charlie Steiner and Daniel Kam, under the direction of teacher Maile Chow. The cover of the book is featured in the 2015 Jostens Look Book.

Mid-Pacific's Ke Ānuenue was one of only 476 yearbooks selected from approximately 3,000. The 2015 panel of judges, comprised of nationally recognized scholastic journalism professionals and award-winning yearbook advisers, selected the best examples of yearbook spreads and covers to make up the 344-page 2015 Look Book.

"Yearbooks are unique, limited edition books created by students to capture the stories and events for all of the school's students and Jostens is proud to celebrate the yearbook tradition and the 476 yearbooks selected for the 2015 Jostens Look Book," said Gary Lundgren, editor. "Today's yearbooks are very sophisticated in terms of visual presentation and the relevant and inclusive content that is featured."

Yearbook adviser Maile Chow and her staff received a copy of the 2015 Jostens Look Book and certificate from Jostens to recognize their outstanding achievement.

Ke Ānunue is a student publication and is created by a staff of students in grades 9-12. This year's yearbook is the 98th volume produced at Mid-Pacific Institute.
