To make the sentences nonracial, we can replace the term "Negro" with "African American" or simply omit it altogether. It is important to consider the context of the sentence and the intended meaning. Here are the revised sentences:

Original: The woman who earned the award was a Negro from Louisiana.
Revised: The woman who earned the award was an African American from Louisiana.
Or Revised: The woman who earned the award was from Louisiana.

Revised: It seems that many seniors are on the bus trip to Laughlin, Nevada.
