Plans For New Youth Scholarship & Leadership Program In The Works

The Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association is delighted to announce the return of Strawberry Days after a two-year hiatus.  During this time, the GSCRA was able to reflect on the goals and purposes of all of the chamber’s events, including Strawberry Days.  Recently, the Chamber’s board of directors unanimously endorsed a plan to end the “Miss Strawberry Days” event and, in 2023, replace it with a more modern competition that symbolizes the values of leadership, excellence, and community service among all young people in Glenwood Springs.  We commemorate Glenwood’s past and eagerly anticipate its very bright future.  Over the next year, the GSCRA Board will develop a new, modern scholarship program that will inclusively and appropriately celebrate the great diversity of young people in the community. More information to be shared in the coming months.
