Formed in 2000, Proud to Host the Best is a committee of passionate Casper-area residents that formed to support bringing the Wyoming High School Athletic Association (WHSAA) Culminating Championships to the community.
The Committee created a zero-based bid and agreed to raise the necessary funds to off-set the hard costs of hosting the tournaments. This is accomplished through sponsorship support and a large volunteer base helping at each event.
The Committee remained under the auspices of the Casper Area Convention and Visitors Bureau until 2018 when it became a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
Current funding is provided by the Joint Powers Board for the Casper Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, Casper College, Natrona County Economic Joint Powers Board, Natrona County Recreation Joint Powers Board and many other entities.
