Wyoming Girls State is a weeklong learning experience and citizenship training for girls who have completed their junior year of high school. During the week, delegates learn about the process of government, create lifelong friendships and connections, and also get the chance to win college scholarships and earn college credit. Its vision is in the spirit of service, not self…to honor the sacrifice of those who served by enhancing the lives of our veterans and their families…In Wyoming we have 42 units around the state and we have around 3, members.
Upon arrival at Girls State, these high school delegates are split into mock cities with names such as Bison, Meadowlark, and Paintbrush.
The girls are also split into mock political parties. It is not about your politics.
During the week, delegates get a hands-on experience learning about being part of government branches. The young women participate in writing and debating bills in the Girls State Senate and House of Representatives, and debating court cases as different positions in the Girls State court room.
Girls State also has the girls learn and participate in voting, party caucuses, and running for different offices. Wyoming Girls State gives an opportunity for young women to meet others with a passion for learning, and an interest in being a part of American democracy. But by each day, I noticed myself coming out of my shell more and more, and I have made amazing friends.अमेरिका का रविवार बाजारandalusian.xyz Farmers Market (ORLANDO FLORIDA)
From this amazing experience I have gained so much confidence, learned so many things, friends, and memories. I recommend for any girl who has even the slightest interest in doing Girls State, do it.
All Wyoming Girls State staff volunteer their time to help the delegates succeed in becoming the best they can be. We make sure our staff also come from all walks of life, so the delegates feel like they have a place. Delegates also participate in activities such as touring the capital and meeting real Wyoming government officials including Governor Mark Gordon and Senator John Barrasso.
They also have the opportunity to participate in a talent show, a drawing contest for the cover of the Girls State Wyoming american girls, and sing in a group choir performance on the steps of the Wyoming Capitol Building. The girls are separated into city rivalries and split into party rivalries. They cheer for their team and they are debating bills and they have some pretty stressful court cases.
For me, choir is that moment for them to emotionally have a safe place, express the stress of it, and to come together and unify as an entire delegation so they know they are a part of something bigger. Through Girls State, we get the chance to discuss a large variety of topics and learn different perspectives. The environment is full of supportive women who believe in you and encourage you to push yourself. Governor Mark Gordon with the Girls State delegates for Photo courtesy of Wyoming Girls State.
