The Spring Lake Collection is an anthology magazine that is jointly produced by the Visual Art and English departments at Derry Area High School. The annual publication is designed to feature some of the best of our students’ original writing and artwork. These works are submitted by both students and teachers and are juried for entry. The selected works are then presented in various professional formats, including a full-color magazine edition. The non-profit booklets are for sale to the public at a nominal cost; any proceeds that might be generated would benefit student activities or student-supported charities at the high school.
