The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos this week:

• Bravo to a project that resulted in donating four doghouses to Service Dogs for America at Jud recently. Students in the Building Construction Technology Program at North Dakota State College of Science, Wahpeton, delivered the doghouses that high school students built during an Imagine It, Design It, Build It Day event in November. The students in the Building Construction Technology Program supervised high school students building the doghouses, giving the NDSCS students experience in communication and the high school students an opportunity to learn about career choices.

• Bravo to the launch of a pilot artist mentorship program in Jamestown. The program is a collaboration between the Jamestown Arts Center and the North Dakota Council on the Arts. The six-week program brings in a guest artist to work with the Jamestown Public School District. Nicole Gagner of Bismarck is the artist working with students in the schools.

• Bravo to the two Jamestown LifeSmarts teams that took top honors at the state LifeSmarts competition this week. JHS team No. 1 took first place and will represent North Dakota at the LifeSmarts National Championship in April in Pittsburgh. JHS team No. 2 placed third at the event.

• Bravo to Kollin Schaff, 6, and Carsen Schaff, 7, Jamestown brothers who recently donated pet items to the James River Humane Society. The boys asked friends and family to skip giving them birthday presents and instead provide items for pets that could be donated to the Humane Society. Kollin's birthday was Jan. 7, and Carsen turns 8 on Feb. 25. The boys said they got enough toys for Christmas and wanted to do something for the Humane Society instead.
