Student Banner Project: People's Choice

Congratulations to Kaija Van Zante from Casey Middle School.

During Boulder Arts Week (March 25 - April 2) the public voted for their favorite student-designed Pearl Street light pole banner, this year with a "Farming" theme.

Kaija's banner received the most votes and was crowned the People's Choice award winner. Banners are still on display through April.


Welcome CWA Attendees!

Every April, participants representing a wide range of backgrounds gather on the CU campus for over 200 panels that encompass arts, media, science, diplomacy, technology, environment, spirituality and much more. Conference participants discuss issues on an impromptu basis.
