Name droppers: Boys and Girls State participants announced

The American Legion and Auxiliary announced that 19 area teens would participate in the 2019 Boys and Girls State program.

365体育投注The program teaches young people about government by creating their own city, county and state government, as well learning leadership skills. The students are selected in their junior year of high school so they can return to their high school and implement these leadership skills. The young women attend Girls State on the Claremont McKenna campus in Ontario; and the young men attend Boys State at Sacramento State.

365体育投注Participants are required to submit a legislative bill prior to attending Girls State or pass the bar exam the first day of Boys State in order to run for a higher office.

It costs the American Legion and Auxiliary $8,000 to fund these programs each year. The following 2019 donors assisted in sending them to these programs: Janet Berry, UC Davis Development Officer and former Girls Stater; Esparto Lions; Nancy Koch; Joyce and Rance Reynolds; Project Management Applications; Carol Rose, Unit 77 Auxiliary member; the Underwood Family; Woodland Host Lions; Woodland Street Cruisers, Woodland Sunrise Rotary; and the Yolo County Veterans Coalition.
