Girls State Interest Form Due by April 9th at 9am

http://girls-state.org/?p=2222 is the Girls State Website if you want to learn more about the program.

What is Girls State?
Texas Bluebonnet Girls State is a mythical 51st state where, for one week, participants, or “citizens”, organize their own city, county, and state governments. They elect their own officials, learn the duties of the various city, county and state offices. Citizens introduce and debate their own bills in a mock legislature. The program concludes with a visit to the State Capitol building in Austin where the citizens are given an opportunity to sight-see and meet state officials.

This is open to only junior girls. Juniors were emailed the form they need to fill out. The form includes the dates that they would need to be available for them to participate. Westwood can only chose 4 students to send to interviews, so please fill the form out ASAP!
