The third annual Wyoming-Montana Academic Challenge was held at Sheridan College Thursday. The competition featured six-player high school all-star teams from both states that were presented with oral questions in a buzzer style format over five rounds of competition.
Wyoming is one of many states that have sought a waiver from the No Child Left Behind Act, an act that was re-written this week by the House Education and Workforce Committee. Sheridan Media's Chris Foy has the story.

Lexie Madden's reign as Miss Wyoming will come to an end this Saturday night in Sheridan, as she'll transfer the crown to the winner of the Miss Wyoming Scholarship Pageant. Madden says the past year has been amazing.
Just a couple of weeks into the summer semester, Sheridan College has experienced an almost 20 percent increase in enrollment. Currently there are 370 students enrolled in one or more courses during the session that began June 10, compared to just over 300 last summer.
Sheridan Fire-Rescue along with Goose Valley Fire Department and Rocky Mountain Ambulance responded to a fire call shortly after 10:30 Thursday morning on the 1000 block of Adams Street. Sheridan Fire Marshal Brian Songer explains what ensued after crews arrived on scene.
Songer said that the origin and cause of the fire remains under investigation. We'll have more information on this story as it becomes available.
