Look no further than the school cafeteria for choice cuts of locally raised meat. The School Nutrition Project, entering its second year, splits the processing costs with districts who receive donated animals from local farmers and 4-H clubs. 

The Wyoming Public Radio News Department was awarded three Regional Edward R. Murrow awards today. WPR competes in region three in the small market category. 

News Director Bob Beck said that everyone is excited about the news. "These are highly sought after awards and are difficult to win. I am extremely proud of our news team for their commitment to excellence. To win three awards in one year is amazing." 

The number of students receiving free and
reduced-price meals at Wyoming public schools increased this year
even though the state's economy has been steadily improving.
     Statistics from the Wyoming Department of Education show that 37
percent of students in Wyoming receive breakfasts and lunches
subsidized by the federal government.
     The 33,052 students qualifying for free and reduced-price meals
represent a 2 percent increase over the 2010-11 school year.
