    I have googled everywhich way and can not find a USNA academy night for my state.

    Whom can I contact?

    When I google my state and Blue Gold Officer, I get nothing.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I know that in my state and area (CA-Bay Area), there were 2 events and they both passed. One was in October and the other in November. Did you mean that you couldn't find who your BGO was? Try figuring out what that is again and contact them because they should have the information.

    Depends on, in Maryland, many MOC sponsors Service Academy Night, so contacting their office or checking their websites.

    Can speak for USNA, but for West Point, the admissions office hold invitiational briefings and usually if you have an open application you will get an invite


    A simple advice is don't rely on google too much. Granted I knew it from the West Point process, so I applied that knowledge, googled USNA, than clicked the admissions site, than clicked "programs and events." I am sure any BGO can answer the question how to can in touch with yoru BGO, but for West Point the Regional Commander or/and local liaison officer contact information is on the candidate portal.

    Exactly. When I google "Blue and gold Gold officer program" and my state, I don't get any hits which Identify that person.

    Is there a website which lists them? I guess the thing to do is simply email the BGO organization and ask them.

    Thanks for your help.

    Okay so on this link: http://www.usna.edu/Admissions/steps9.htm it says "Contact with your assigned Blue and Gold Officer should be established immediately upon receipt of a Naval Academy application packet."

    I'm assuming that you are not a current applicant otherwise you would know who your BGO was (at least I would hope so). I would recommend to contact the Admissions office with an email and ask for your BGO's contact information. Or if you will be applying to NASS when the application comes out (February I think?), they will give you the information as well.

    Please understand, the contact information you will find in the Admissions site will be for your AREA COORDINATOR who will be able to steer you to your BGO or take on the counseling. My practice was to keep my area's BGO's free to focus on doing interviews and counsel current candidates, so I would work with the underclass prospects, college fairs, etc - but that was just me; I was self-employed and had better control of my personal schedule than most of my BGO's. Best wishes to you.
