CAMP ROCKY (Colorado’s natural resources high school camp) is held on the second week of July at the Rocky Mountain Mennonite Camp near Divide. The CSSRM gets exposures by having a HSYF delegate give his/her paper presentation as part of the Camp Rocky program. We also present SRM belt buckles to the “top hand” in the rangeland management group. The CSSRM sponsors youth to the HIGH SCHOOL YOUTH FORUM each year as part of the SMR annual convention. Our delegates always give excellent papers as their participation in the illustrated talk competition of the Forum. We select our delegates from the top campers in the rangeland management group at Camp Rocky and from the high scoring individuals at the state FFA rangeland judging competition.

Our Section assists in the coordination of several FFA rangeland judging activities in the state. These included the southeast Colorado FFA regional Rangeland Judging Contests and the Eastern CO State FFA Rangeland Judging Contests. We present a check in the amount of $200 and SRM plaques to the high scoring individuals at these contests. The CSSRM solicits high school and college freshman range science students to apply for the Masonic Range Science scholarship that is awarded at the SRM annual convention. We advertise for applications to be submitted for this prestigious scholarship through State FFA and 4-H sources.
