GIRLS STATE FOR JUNIORS
Junior Girls: If you have an interest in learning more about our government, then you might want to get involved with Girls State! This summer it will be held at Bethel University from June 10-16. If you are interested please see Mrs. Kelzer for the details. Deadline: February 28. Each summer, approximately 16,000 young women participate in weeklong ALA Girls State programs across the nation. Every American Legion Auxiliary Girls State program operates with the same patriotic values through a nonpartisan curriculum where students assume the roles of government leaders, campaigning in mock parties (often called “Federalists” and “Nationalists”) to become mayors and county and state officials of their ALA Girls State. The program is a weeklong immersive learning experience, often held on a college campus where girls live in “cities” within a dormitory-like setting. The learning, experience, memories, and friendships last a lifetime.
