Local Students selected for Summer High School Institute at UW
May 17, 2013 — An opportunity to achieve intellectual and personal growth for 85 talented sophomores throughout the state will be presented in the 29th annual Summer High School Institute June 9-29 at the University of Wyoming.
The students were selected from 75 schools in 50 school districts. UW offers the students an opportunity to achieve intellectual and personal growth, cultivate their leadership capabilities, and measure their capacities and interests.
UW faculty members will conduct problem-centered classes ranging from philosophy to DNA to robotics and pharmacy.
Athletic activities, talent shows, picnics, community service, dances, guest speakers, attendance at local concerts and plays, visits to museums and enrichment excursions will complement the three-week institute.
High school administrators, counselors and teachers guided students through the application process. Selections were based on an application letter and an essay, two letters of recommendation, academic performance and extracurricular activity involvement.
UW sponsors the annual summer program, with special funding from the Wyoming State Legislature.
