Since 1996 , a student from one of Littletons three high schools has been a part of each delegation. Students who apply for the all-expense paid trip prepare and present a program based on the theme, "LIttleton, My Hometown", to a selection commettee. The winning student gives the presentation to Littleton City COuncil and other local civic groups. Over the years, students have been very enthusiastic about their experiences as student ambassador. Students have opportunities to make lifelong friendships and develop perspectives of a different country and culture .
