This hands-on, outdoor event provides participants with an opportunity to complete a wide variety of outdoor activities throughout 2015, then document and submit their accomplishments on a scorecard and with photos. Scorecards are available at www.wyoutside.com.

All entries for the 2015 Challenge are due on January 15, 2016.  Gather up evidence of your outdoor adventures, fill out the scorecard, and figure out how many points you’ve scored this year. Short on points? There is still time to participate in the 2015 WY Outside Challenge throughout the month of December and until the January deadline.

All photos and scorecards should be submitted to WY Outside Administrative Coordinator Ashley Rooney, whose contact information is below. Every participant who obtains 200 points will receive a certificate proclaiming them a “WY Outside Challenge Master,” signed by Wyoming Governor Matt Mead and Wyoming Superintendent of Public Instruction, Jillian Balow.

The subject refused to make contact with the deputies and remained seated in his truck.
