A new student organization at Glenwood Springs High School (GSHS) is Political Awareness Club. The club is based around gaining a deeper understanding of current issues in politics and the political views of others. The club discusses government issues, laws, and politics in general. The main goal is to educate the students on current events and political injustices. Students gather each week during lunch and discuss what they believe is important and should be spoken about. They talk about how politics affect our daily life, large governments world wide, corrupt economies.

    “The club really gets into the topic and we sometimes end up arguing amongst one another but we always reach a reasonable conclusion,” says Junior Isabelle Lorah.

    The program allows students to freely talk about their beliefs with their peers. They have the freedom to discuss any important matters or basic politics. The benefits of being able to freely speak shows the students that they should not be told what they are allowed and not allowed to talk about, the students are taught to speak their mind.

   “We discuss international, regional, local and state politics. We have debates, discussions and other activities. We are encouraged to state our opinions and discuss things that are important to us,” says Lorah.  The club is a great way to see new ways of thinking and discuss your point of view.

   The new clubs are very interesting and helpful for students. The clubs show the importance of what they are based around and teach students teamwork, cooperation and many other useful skills.
