Boys and Girls State Representatives from Jefferson
Published on May 8, 2018
Juniors Ella Jones, Abigail Faulk, Charles Maki and Ryan Martz have been selected to represent Jefferson at Boys and Girls State. Each year the American Legion Boys and Girls’ States are among the most respected and selective educational programs for government instruction for high school students.
Girls and Boys State are participatory programs where each student becomes a part a model government that reflects our federal system of government. Participants learn about the rights, privileges, duties, and responsibilities that go along with being a citizen. The experience allows students operate city, county and state governments by being elected to the various offices. Activities include legislative sessions, court proceedings, law-enforcement presentations, assemblies, bands, chorus and recreational programs. High school juniors are sponsored by local American Legion Posts to attend the programs. Boys State and Girls State teaches government through firsthand experience. Congratulations and have a fun summer leadership experience!
