Can you believe that school, in Cheyenne, will be out in 17 weeks from today?!?! The track and field hoorah's. The spirit days. The last minute "get your grades up" conversations. Let's not forget the graduation days! So many things to think about and prepare for as our children grow into themselves and the world around them. 

As parents and guardians we try, with all of our might, to make sure that our children have the skill set, common sense and knowledge we think they will need to soar into their next chapter. Can we just spin the word college around in our mouths for a second? I mean, the money just to attend is a challenge in itself. Plus the books, the cars, the gas, the ramen noodles, the hoodies, the cell phones and headphones. 

NextHome Rustic Realty is dedicated to helping our local young adults learn to lead the future with a commitment to excellence, ethics and growth. Let's be real. They ARE our future. 

Every year we choose 2 applicants that are seeking a degree in Business/Business Management, Marketing or Real Estate. We get in touch with all of the local high schools, LCCC and University of Wyoming and we provide them the link for the application and any student interested in applying can absolutely do so! Here are a few requirements. 


Applicant must:

  • Be a legal resident of Laramie County. Be a current senior student at a Laramie County High School; or be a graduate of a Laramie County High School; or have a G.E.D.
  • Have a cumulative high school grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 or better on a 4.0 scale, as evidenced by an official transcript from the applicant’s high school.
  • Course of study must directly relate to Business, Marketing, Real Estate.
  • Have significantly contributed to his or her school or community by way of involvement in extra-curricular activities, including, but not limited to service clubs or organizations, honor societies, choir, orchestra, band, athletics, speech, or debate teams, fine performing arts, Scouts, FFA, and 4-H.


  • Completed (typed) application form.

  • All current High School students must submit a letter of recommendation from a member of school faculty or administration. Post High School graduates (or G.E.D.) must provide a letter of recommendation from a civic leader, volunteer coordinator, or employer.
  • For High School graduates of any year other than the current one, and entering college for the first time, a resume.

A typewritten 500 word maximum essay on why you want to pursue the course of study you have chosen and how it would relate to the Business, Marketing, or Real Estate.
