It’s time again to begin applying for Girls State 2019!
Girls who have successfully completed their junior year of high school and who have at least one more semester remaining are eligable. A good candidate are those who illustrate leadership, character, scholarship, loyalty and service in their schools and community should be considered.
We had an amazing turnout last year from the Meridian schools and I would like to thank you all for your time and effort in helping these young ladies become involved in this tremendous experience. Ava Powell (Bishop Kelly), one of our recruits, was elected as Governor!
I cannot emphasize strongly enough how much this week means to the girls and how valuable the Girls State experience appears on college and scholarship applications. Here in Idaho we have no limitation on how many young ladies can participate and I do my best to ensure that any Junior girl interested is given the opportunity to attend.
The 2019 Girls State will be held June 9-14 at Northwest Nazarene University in Nampa, Idaho. Cost of attendance is $375.
