What is Girls State?

The American Legion Auxiliary holds Girls State at Weber State in the summer for junior girls interested in increasing their knowledge on civic leadership and public service. This is an opportunity for girls to learn more about the inner workings of our government at the city, county, state, and national levels.  You will “create and run” a state of your own.  You will also gain a deeper understanding of our nation, our flag, and those men and women who have served this great country, past and present.

Girls State is held from June 4-9, 2018.  The cost is $400 dollars which includes room, meals, supplies and 3 hours of POLS 2920 university credit.

330 girls from across the state will be selected to attend.  If you are interested in applying and interviewing please see Mrs. Dangerfield for more information. Your application is due into Mrs. Dangerfield by February 20th.
