Sundance Student Council is helping flocks of flamingos find new homes throughout our beautiful town and they may find your yard to be quite cozy! In order to raise money for students to attend the Summer Leadership Camp, the Sundance High School Student Council is setting up plas- tic flamingos in people's yards. If you are flocked where the flamingos are placed is up to you! You can send them to a friend's yard or maybe to an unsuspecting neighbor. But watch out! You might just get flocked! If you get flocked and would like the lawn ornaments re- moved it costs $10. If you would like to send them to anoth- er yard, it is $15. If you would like to send them to another yard, but would like to do so anonymously, it is $20. If you are flocked, a form will be attached to your door with all instructions included. If you choose to not participate, the flamingos will be moved after three days. The money, once again, goes towards students who would like to attend the Summer Leadership Camp. This fund raiser will take place between April 14 and May 14. If you have any questions or concems please contact Olivia Croft at 16crofto@,crook1.com.

Students encouraged to apply for Thomas Foundation scholarships Students from Wyoming may apply for fall semester scholarships from the Craig and Susan Thomas Founda- tion now until May 1, 2015. The Foundation is dedicated to helping students who have struggled in school and who want to continue their post- secondary education. Susan Thomas, Founda- tion director, said, "I believe strongly in Wyoming's young people who want a second chance in life. We provide a solid way for them to move forward, to grow, to meet their goals and aspirations." Students may download ap- plications on our website at www.Thomas- Foundation. com. The scholarships are $1300 per semester, include intense mentoring, and are offered one semester at a time. According to Mrs. Thomas, who person- ally mentors each student, it is important to encourage, to listen, and to provide assis- tance and guidance to each student as they make their way through higher-learning programs. The Craig and Susan Thom- as Foundation focuses on stu- dents who are at risk. Schol- arships are a key element of the Foundation. Other pro- grams include grants given to groups that support Founda- tion goals, and the Leadership Award. This award is given to an adult in Wyoming who has truly gone above and beyond the call of duty to be an advo- cate for those who need help the most. The award includes a cash prize of $2500 for the winner. High School Rodeo With winter past and spring well on its way, Crook County High School Rodeo contestants traveled southwest to Lara- mie, Wyoming this past weekend for their first rodeo of the spring season. The rodeo was held at Hansen Arena, home to the University of Wyoming college rodeo team. All contes- tants are performing their best to be in contention for a top spot in each of the 13 events. An added event this year is reined cowhorse. The LHSR did not have girls or boys cutting or working cowhorse as it is optional for each hosting com- mittee. By placing in the top four in each of the 13 events at the end of the state finals mid-June based on accumulated points, contestants will earn the privilege to represent Wyo- ming at the National High School Rodeo finals to be held in Rock Springs mid-July.
