Girls State Objectives

We are a non-partisan program with the following objectives:

  • To develop civic leadership and pride in American citizenship.
  • To arouse a keen interest in the detailed study of our government.
  • To develop in the citizens a determination to maintain our form of government, primarily by bringing them to the realization of how great it is to be an American.
  • To inculcate a sense of individual obligation to the Community, State and Nation.

Girls State has 750 poppies made by veterans at the VA hospital in Hampton.
We are proudly wearing those poppies this week.
