Youth Month 



Woodland Park’s annual Youth Month gave 17 eighth grade students an in-depth look at how their local government and town works. Similar to running for real office, students ran for and were elected to positions

Following elections, the students had a number of opportunities to see their government in action. A tour of the town included stops at Fire Company No. 2, the Department of Public Works, Board of Education building, municipal building, police department, Alfred Baumann Library, and WP First Aid Squad.
