Unusual Yearbook Interview Questions for Unique Comments

Your yearbook needs student quotes. But where do they come from?

Ask most people for a yearbook quote, and they’ll stare at you blankly. Where do you even begin to sum up your school life and the time you’ve spent together?

There’s a trick to creating great yearbook quotes. Behind every great yearbook quote is an equally great interview question. If you want your yearbook to stand out from the crowd and highlight your year’s individuality, ask your classmates some unusual and interesting questions!

Here are some of the very best questions to get you started, along with some yearbook-related tasks you can ask your classmates to complete, and some of the most bizarre but thought-inspiring questions ever written.
