Making Colorado is looking for the next generation of social media marketers that can capture the spirit and pride of their hometown Colorado county. Through this unique program, one high school junior from all 64 counties in Colorado will have the opportunity to impact the future of the state.

The Making Colorado Youth Ambassadors will contribute visual and written content from their hometowns and keep local residents updated on project milestones.  In addition, several Youth Ambassadors will be selected to serve on the Making Colorado Brand Council, a group comprised of influential professionals at Colorado companies and organizations. Team members will also have the opportunity to take part in webinars throughout the summer to learn marketing and social media skills from some of Colorado’s top business people.

“This is an enrichment opportunity for young people across the state to participate in a first-of-its-kind branding initiative, network with community members, learn from industry-leading professionals and demonstrate what Colorado means to them,” said Colorado’s Chief Marketing Officer Aaron Kennedy.

Youth Ambassador responsibilities and expectations will include:

  • Publishing information which answers “What’s Your County’s Vibe?” on their personal social media channels.
  • Publishing pictures on the Making Colorado Youth Pinterest page, which express Colorado’s uniqueness in their community.
  • Sharing Making Colorado promotional content within their communities.
  • Creating a multi-media story that showcases what makes their community special, which will be highlighted on the Making Colorado blog.


Applications for the Youth Ambassador Council will be accepted May 8 through June 6, 2013. To apply, visit
