At a ceremony last weekend in Seattle, the 2010/11 Aerie Yearbook was honored with a Pacemaker Award by the National Scholastic Press Association. Brentwood was one of only 20 schools to win the award, which makes last year's yearbook one of the top 20 yearbooks in the country. This is the second time in four years that the Brentwood yearbook has been honored with this award and only the third time in Brentwood's 40-year history.
Since 1927, NSPA's Pacemaker competition has been considered by many to be student journalism's highest honor. All NSPA yearbook and magazine members are eligible to compete in their respective national Pacemaker competitions. Yearbook/Magazine Pacemakers are judged based upon the following criteria: writing/editing, design, content, concept, photography, art and graphics.

Congratulations to the 2010/11 staff and to their amazing advisor, Mark Novom.
