This year’s Colorado Springs Young Champion Ambassador was announced Thursday, after 10 finalists delivered presentations to a panel of community judges at City Hall.
The winner was based on a combination of their accomplishments and performance throughout the six-month program, and that two-minute presentation.
This year’s Young Champion Ambassador is Vanessa Addison from Rampart High School. With this new title, she has some exciting things coming up in the new year.
“By winning the Young Champion Ambassador program, I get to represent Colorado Springs, which is a sister city to ancient Olympia, in Greece, and we get to go to Switzerland, next summer,” Vanessa said. “I’ll be able to represent the Olympic brand and all the values with my fellow ambassadors.”
In Greece, Vanessa will get a historical tour of the ancient Olympic grounds. That trip is coming up in March.
