Planning Days are college fairs hosted at different high schools throughout the state. These fairs are open to high school juniors and seniors and provide an opportunity to meet with colleges, military and other organizations you are interested in learning more about. This is a fantastic time to start your post-secondary search!
Make sure to log-on to the website www.gotocollegefairs.com/wyoming to register for your personal bar code before the fair. WAO has contracted with College Fair Automation for the use of electronic scanners to be used in collecting your information at the fair. Why go online to register and get your personal bar code? Having the bar code at the fair is great for three reasons: 1) Why waste time filling out card after card that asks the exact same information when you can just hold out your bar code and have the college or military representative scan it? 2) Representatives have not gone through FBI handwriting analysis training and therefore can't always decipher some people's chicken scratch. So to ensure your mail comes to Betty and not Beefy go online and register. 3) This will be your (if you are a high school senior) entry into a drawing for a scholarship!

Here are some sample questions to get you thinking:
