congressional award

Members of Wyoming’s Congressional Delegation will be in Jackson Hole during the first part of next week as efforts to raise money for the annual Wyoming Congressional Award take place here.  The Wyoming Congressional Award, established by late Wyoming Senator Malcolm Wallop, seeks to provide opportunities for young people ages 13.5 through 23 to unleash their potential by achieving personal goals focused on volunteerism, character development and fitness.  Among those who will be on hand for the three-day event is Senator John Barrasso.  Barrasso says the events will include a golf tournament in the activities Monday through Wednesday all aimed at raising money to help fund the program that helps put students on the path of volunteerism and commitment to the nation.  Barrasso points out that Wyoming has one of the highest per capita rates of young people earning and winning these medals.  He says such commitment is way for the young people to grow in their own character and their own strength.  Barrasso says each state has such an awards program which gives bronze, silver and gold awards to young people for their commitment to volunteerism.
