My Gold Award experience at the Colorado State Capitol

On Monday, April 10, 2017, Gold Award recipient Anastasia Rosen attended Girl Scouts of Colorado’s Gold Award Day at the Colorado Capitol. The Kay Rugeley Shaw Gold Travelship helped to support her trip to Denver for this exciting and exclusive event!

Read more about Anastasia’s experience below.

My day at the Colorado State Capitol started out with a breakfast buffet at The University Club and pictures with Girl Scout Gold Award committee. We then walked to the capitol for more pictures on the West staircase. We started our tour of the capitol off in the Old Supreme Court Chamber. We then moved to the floor of The House of Representatives and said the Pledge of Allegiance, then we saw how they voted and passed bills.

After listening to the Representatives, we moved on to Mr. Brown’s attic, which is a really neat museum just below the dome. We toured the dome and took pictures and heard some interesting facts about the building as well as the surrounding suburbs. After coming down from the dome, we toured Mr. Brown’s attic and heard stories as well as some interesting facts about Mr. Brown, his journey into Denver, and the capitol. Throughout the day, I learned a lot of history about the capitol building and Denver itself.

After the tour of Mr. Brown’s attic, we went back to the Old Supreme Court Chambers and heard a great speech from our host, Representative Faith Winter. I had such a great time celebrating my Gold Award achievement with my sister Girl Scouts.
