Eight students from the F. E. Warren Air Force Base Youth Center and their production of “Remember Outside?!?” are the winners of the inaugural WY Outside Youth Video competition.
Youth Lead and producer of the video is Jenna Weinzierl, who was joined by
Samantha Chernogorec, Aamiah Jones, Dakoda Kempthorne, Aidan Lanchoney, Keyan Mefford-Owens, Zoe Posch, Dominick Rodriguez, and Drake Salmon in the completion of the production filmed at the Youth Center.

In winning the competition, the students each received an LED flashlight, 5-in-1 utility tool, and a gift bag from the Game and Fish expo. The Youth Center received three fishing poles.
This year’s video competition was developed to engage youth and their interests in expressing what is important to them about being outside. The contest was open to all Wyoming youth and entrants were encouraged to go outdoors and experience nature for themselves.
Entrants were asked to produce a video sharing what is important to them about being outside!
