COSLI Linked--Help Us Wrap the Capitol!
April 19, 2018
As part of the legislative requirement to match state funds with a $40,000 contribution, the COSLI Student Board has initiated "COSLI Linked." This project offers you a chance to be heard by your state legislators, while giving students an opportunity to further ‘link’ with our State's leaders. In an effort to beat the Guinness World record for longest paper chain created by a team, COSLI is making paper chain links available for purchase for $5 each. Buyers will write a message on the link, a copy of which will be hand delivered to the chosen recipient at Colorado’s Capitol on April 19. This is when COSLI students, supporters and alumni from around the state, will gather at The Capitol to wrap the links around the building as a way of "linking" COSLI with Colorado's leaders. These 8,000 links will put COSLI at the annual goal of $40,000 and will break the record.
Links can be purchased until Wednesday, April 18th at 12am.
After you purchase your links, email the message you would like written on your link to [email protected]. Copies of link messages will be delivered after the wrapping event.
Letter from COSLI Student Advisory Board President
Dear Parents & Students of Colorado:
I am proud to introduce myself as the Student Advisory Board President of the Colorado Student Leaders Institute. As a student from the rural community of Ignacio, I can say that the COSLI summer program is an incredible opportunity for ALL Colorado students! COSLI brings the best and brightest students from across Colorado to prepare Colorado’s leaders through an intense summer program hosted by the University of Colorado Denver.
We need your help to raise necessary funds for our wonderful program. Our annual goal is $40,000, as required by the legislation. We want to invite you to participate in our “COSLI Linked” project. COSLI Linked will offer you a chance to be heard by your state legislative leaders!
You purchase paper links that can have your chosen message to Colorado State Legislators written on them. On April 19, 2018, all of the links will be wrapped as far around The Capitol as we can. Our goal is to create a chain of 8,000 paper links. This would break the Guiness world record for the largest paper chain ever made by a group. And, COSLI students will then deliver your messages directly to the legislators (you’ll see pictures to prove it!!)! Wouldn't you like to be a part of this historic event?
Links can be purchased online through https://www.eventbrite.com/e/cosli-linked-tickets-38757199828 until Wednesday, April 18th at 12am. After you purchase your links, email the message you would like written on your link to [email protected]. Copies of link messages will be delivered after the wrapping event.
We thank you for supporting our program in any way. Through participating in Links, or just simply telling fellow Coloradans about who we are. We here at COSLI hope you have a wonderful New Year – oh, and feel free to join us at The Capitol!
