Michelle Nauer and Wayne WilliamsThe State of Colorado put together and intiative to encourage students to register to vote. Students can register when they turn 16 but they can not vote until they are 18. Michelle Nauer started working with Ouray School and Evan Vann to encourse students to register to vote. According to Wayne Williams, Secretary of State, said that it is a lot harder than it sounds. They have only awarded six awards so far. Ouray High School was the six high school to receive the Eliza Pickrell Routt Award. The requirement is that 85% of the senior class register to vote. Williams traveled from Denver to be at our awards ceremony because he feels it is important to recognize when students take the initiative to register to vote.
