A gold color metal and enamel device 1 1/8 inches (2.86 cm) in height overall, consisting of a shield depicting an outstretched arm holding high the torch of knowledge, framed by the cityscape of the historic Colorado City of Pueblo on the right and the cornucopia for the agricultural background of the local community on the left. Surrounding the shield on the bottom edge is a scroll inscribed "PUEBLO COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL" in green letters.
Green and gold are the school colors. The cityscape depicts the historic Colorado City of Pueblo, established by early pioneers and traders from which the county and the high school derive their names. The cornucopia symbolizes the agricultural background of the local community and represents the strength of the early pioneers who settled along the upper Arkansas River Valley to establish civilization and order in the American West. The extended arm holding the torch of knowledge represents the goal of achieving excellence in education to which all cadets and the community are committed. It also reflects the cadets' moral courage and resolve to serve their school, community and country.
The shoulder loop insignia was approved on 16 September 2003.
