Scott Stevens

Wyoming

Scott Stevens, 18, of Saratoga High School in Saratoga, Wyoming, mobilized his entire town to get behind the much-needed renovation of the town's athletic track. Scott recognized that the track was in such disrepair, so he formed the Saratoga Community Track Association to raise awareness of the problem, raise funds to support the renovation, and enlist support from engineers and area businesses in the actual improvement. He has coordinated blueprints, engineers' activities, water rights, construction bids, and fund-raisers. Scott estimates that by the year 2002, the all-new, eight-lane track will be ready for use, complete with a new fence, bleachers and lighting system. "The complex will be known as the Saratoga Field of Dreams," he said.
