Calling all high school Juniors to Evergreen State

Friday, December 15, 2017

Boys State and Girls State are summer leadership and citizenship programs (separate, one week camps) sponsored by the American Legion and American Legion Auxiliary.

Evergreen State aims to simulate and emulate Washington State government through a fun and engaging summer program for high school juniors (rising seniors).

Participants will have an opportunity to construct local, county and state governments. Activities include running for office, court proceedings, creating and enforcing laws, pizza parties, a talent show, celebrations, and recreational programs.

You’ll hone your public speaking skills, experience how government works, get inspired by guest speakers, have fun and make new friends for life.

Boys: EBS will be held at the Warm Beach Conference Center, Stanwood, Washington, x 1 week (camp), from June 17-23, 2018.

Girls: EGS will be held (tentatively) at Central Washington University, Ellensburg, Washington, x 1 week (camp), from June 10-16, 2018.

If you know of a relative, friend or neighbor who will complete their Junior year of high school in 2018, please encourage them to check out these websites for details.

It is a one-of-a-kind workshop and learning opportunity, unique in the nation …. since 1935 (83 years, and counting).

It will challenge students to grow, improve, and achieve - while preparing them for the responsibilities of adulthood.

Teaches leadership, governance and civics in a non-partisan manner.

Is hands-on, interactive, and fun!

Attendees will have the opportunity to earn additional college scholarships, create lifetime friendships, and add an important milestone to their resume.
