The 2019 Wyoming Girls State Session will be held at Laramie County Community College in Cheyenne, Wyoming from Sunday, June 9 to Saturday, June 15, 2019. Any female student in the Junior Class, attending school in Wyoming, is eligible to participate, providing she is selected as a Delegate and is sponsored by an American Legion Auxiliary Department of Wyoming Unit. This includes students who are being home schooled if the local School District has approved their curriculum and classifies them as a member of the Junior Class.
The American Legion Auxiliary Wyoming Girls State program is a week-long session of learning about our government - on the city, county, and state levels. It is practical application of Americanism and good citizenship. It was developed from the idea that our youth should be offered a better perspective of the practical operation of our government, and that the individual, being an integral part of the government, is ultimately responsible for the character and success of the government. The American Legion Auxiliary organized the Girls State program in 1941.
