As a former resident of NH I think the above post says it all. I think this young lady should be proud as I'm sure her parents are as well. Don't take the off handed remarks seriously. Their just from those who live in the always in the red state. MA.I don't think the color purple bill is stupid at all. It totally makes sense to distinguish NH from say...Massachusetts.
When I was in grade school in NH we had the purple lilac as the state flower and the purple finch as our state bird. The state tree was a birch tree.
Now the reason this girl is getting opposition is b/c you get yahoos who are connected in NH that bizarre state crap passed, like the state lizard and the state drink. Now this kid pays the price for others stupidity.
As for other kids liking red as their favorite color, who cares? Boys like red and girls like pink. The color purple already goes with other state symbols. Plus it's not wacky like the state....drink.... Geeesh. Did that really pass?
BTW Jasper, if you don't know what a spotted newt is maybe you should read about them. Good god man, you're a state rep voting on state laws. Get those brain cells working and start learning about the great state of New Hampshire!

I agree with the State Reps. It seems like people have forgotten the whole reason behind declaring something as a state symbol -whether it color, bird, etc...
Purple has no meaning or relation to the State of New Hampshire, so how does it make sense to make it the state color?
I dont believe that the State Reps are trying to knock down or stop these kids from making their voices heard, but trying to show them that not everything is fun and games.
and id rather the state rep spend time on bills instead of memorizing what different lizards look like

The young lady was well reasoned in choosing the color and in her handling of the unwarranted "backlash" She appears to be smarter and have a much brighter future than those elected officials who spoke against the bill.

The reasons are for the state flower- the purple lilac- and the state bird- the purple finch. These two symbols are purple, so Kristyn believes that the state color should be purple too. It would help the students remember the flower and bird.
