Students writing yearbook dedications include direct quotes from teachers, staff and fellow students to personalize the message. Personally interviewing students to get feedback about school or world events that occurred during the year helps to provide information for student dedications in a yearbook.
Students can include observations about fellow students or the school's environment itself when writing dedications in a yearbook. They can illustrate the student culture, school spirit displayed at athletic and club events, and the accomplishments and successes of the school year. The yearbook staff can also reference inside jokes and humorous stories about extracurricular activities, social events and athletic games.
Student dedications can follow trends and include information about pop culture to document the school year. Popular phrases, songs, quotes from movies and television shows, and dance moves can be referenced in the dedication so students looking back in the yearbook years later can remember the pop culture. Fashion trends such as types of clothing or hairstyles that were popular can also be included in dedications for the yearbook.
Student dedications that include traditions by each senior class are also memorable. Class slogans, student council votes or activities, and key individuals who held leadership positions should be referenced to document the year.
