Governor Jack Dalrymple appointed Glenda Fauske from the Coalition for Conservation and Environmental Education to serve as North Dakota’s selection coordinator for the 2016 National Youth Science Camp (NYSC). Two high school seniors will receive a full scholarship to exchange ideas with scientists and other professionals from the academic and corporate worlds. The nearly month-long experience includes lectures and hands-on research projects presented by scientists from across the nation; overnight camping trips into the Monongahela National Forest; and a visit to Washington D.C. The selected delegates must not only demonstrate academic achievement in science, but also show potential for thoughtful scientific leadership.

The NYSC experience is offered at no cost to its participants, so that selected delegates may attend regardless of their financial status. Contributions to the National Youth Science Foundation® allow delegates to participate in this “once in a lifetime” experience. Educational and recreational programming, as well as meals, lodging, and round-trip air passage on scheduled airlines are provided free of charge.

Delegates arrive in Charleston, West Virginia, on Wednesday, June 15, and depart on Sunday, July 10, 2016. The NYSC is held near Bartow in the eastern mountains of West Virginia, within the Monongahela National Forest. Application forms are available on the NYSC website at

Applications must be submitted by Wednesday, February 17, 2015 by 6:00 p.m. EST. You may apply at

Elder's Meditation of the Day February 9
"It can be 100 degrees in the shade one afternoon and suddenly there comes a storm with hailstones as big as golf balls, the prairie is all white and your teeth chatter. That's good - a reminder that you are just a small particle of nature, not so powerful as you think."
--Lame Deer, LAKOTA
No event, no relationship, no joy, no sadness, no situation ever stays the same. Every setback is only temporary. Even setbacks change. Why? Because the Great Spirit designed the world to be constantly changing. We are not the center of the universe, we are but a small part. The whole is constantly changing, and we as humans are constantly participating in the change. We have two choices, to resist change or participate in the change. Every change can be resisted, and every change can be made in cooperation. What will I choose today, resistance or cooperation?

Great Spirit, teach me to make cooperative changes
Happy Birthday!

graduating class of 2017, the North Dakota University System announces the North Dakota Scholarship Program. This program recognizes outstanding North Dakota high school seniors for scholastic achievement as measured by their ACT scores. Scholars will be announced in fall 2016 and will receive a letter from the North Dakota University System designating them as North Dakota Scholars. North Dakota Scholars who enroll in a North Dakota college or university will be awarded an in-state tuition scholarship. Students who attend a private institution will be awarded an amount not to exceed the highest public school rate in the state. Not all students who place in the top ninety-fifth percentile will be awarded the North Dakota Scholars award due to limited funding.

Requirements: North Dakota residency, graduate from a North Dakota high school, attend a North Dakota college or university during 2017-18 as a full-time student and have taken the ACT before July 1, 2016
