Thompson Memorial Writing Contest. Each year, for ten years, the Pioneer Association has been charged with facilitating a writing contest within Hot Springs County Schools. This effort affords students an opportunity to research, interview, and write factual accounts related to the history of Thermopolis, Hot Springs County, and Wyoming.</p> <p>The Jessie C. Thompson Memorial Award is funded by Mr. J. C. Thompson, son of former Superintendent of County Schools, Jessie C. Thompson. Please find attached to this letter, a bio written by Dorothy Milek, providing a glimpse of the legacy of the Thompsons. The endowment allows each school (RWE, Middle, &amp; HSC High) to receive $500 as an award, to be distributed to the appropriate winners in each school.</p> <p>The HSCo. Pioneer Assn. looks forward to assisting and encouraging participation in this program. We have a rich heritage to explore and record in this great state and county. What better way to delve into our past than through fresh young eyes and minds, while giving them ownership of their roots as it were, in Hot Springs County and Wyoming!</p> <p>It is our prayer that Hot Springs County School District #1 would participate in and encourage studies of Wyoming history whenever possible.</p> <p>Please find attached, a resource guide and some parameters for the writing contest.</p> <p>Sincerely,<br /> <signed><br /> Raymond E. Shaffer, President<br /> Hot Springs County Pioneer Association</signed></p> <p><a href="w3images/piowriting.pdf">Click here for resource guide </a></p> </div> <!-- Header --> <div class="w3-container" id="photos" style="margin-top:80px"> <h1 class="w3-xxxlarge w3-text-brown"><b>Our history...</b></h1> <h1 class="w3-xlarge w3-text-tan"><b>Click on a picture for more info</b></h1> <hr class="w3-round" style="width:50px;border:5px solid tan" /></div> <!-- Photo grid (modal) --> <div class="w3-row-padding"> <div class="w3-half"><img alt="Postcard showing 'new' highway in Wind River Canyon." onclick="onClick(this)" src="w3images/wrc.jpg" style="width:50%" /> <img alt="Big Horn Springs in Thermopolis in Winter." onclick="onClick(this)" src="w3images/hswinter.jpg" style="width:50%" /> <img alt="One of the early State Bathhouses in Thermopolis." onclick="onClick(this)" src="w3images/bathhouse.jpg" style="width:50%" /> <img alt="Outlet of Big Spring." onclick="onClick(this)" src="w3images/spring.jpg" style="width:50%" /> <img alt="Early view of Star Plunge, circa 1915." onclick="onClick(this)" src="w3images/star.jpg" style="width:50%" /></div> <div class="w3-half"><img alt="Washakie Plunge" onclick="onClick(this)" src="w3images/washakie.jpg" style="width:50%" /> <img alt="Sheepherder's wagon with young sheepherders." onclick="onClick(this)" src="w3images/a053.jpg" style="width:50%" /> <img alt="State bathhouse advertising free baths." onclick="onClick(this)" src="w3images/bu093.jpg" style="width:50%" /> <img alt="Broadway Garage, now the site of our County Museum." onclick="onClick(this)" src="w3images/bu560.jpg" style="width:50%" /> <img alt="Main Street Thermopolis" onclick="onClick(this)" src="w3images/main.jpg" style="width:50%" /></div> </div> <!-- Modal for full size images on click--> <div class="w3-modal w3-black" id="modal01" onclick="this.style.display='none'" style="padding-top:0"><span class="w3-button w3-black w3-xxlarge w3-display-topright">&times;</span> <div class="w3-modal-content w3-animate-zoom w3-center w3-transparent w3-padding-64"><img class="w3-image" id="img01" /> <p id="caption"></p> </div> </div> <!-- Help --> <div class="w3-container" id="help" style="margin-top:75px"> <h1 class="w3-xxxlarge w3-text-brown"><b>Help Us</b></h1> <hr class="w3-round" style="width:50px;border:5px solid tan" /> <h3>How you can help</h3> <p>We are always looking for new members with ties to the county.</p> <p>Contact us for more information.</p> <font color="red">Monetary donations are also welcome.<br /> Please help us preserve unique local history...
