Girls and Boys State Delegates Named
Two GSA junior boys and junior girls were nominated by faculty here for Maine American Legion Dirigo Girls State and Boys State this summer.
Alice Bowden of Sedgwick and Lucy Morison of Hancock will attend the Girls State exercise in state and local government at Husson University in Bangor June 16-21. Alex Tully of Surry and Joe Ciampa of Brooksville will attend Boys State at Thomas College in Waterville June 16-20.
The state programs are run by the Maine American Legion and American Legion Auxiliary. The GSA students are sponsored by The American Legion Duffy-Wescott Post 85 in Blue Hill.
Girls State and Boys State delegates engage in simulated campaigns for elected office, then learn how our local, county, and state governments function through role play. We wish the participants all the best in getting as much out of this experience as possible.
