Magnolia Girls State
The American Legion Auxiliary Girls State Program has provided high school juniors all across the United States the opportunity to participate in a hands-on citizenship training program for more than 60 years.
These young ladies learn government by actually creating a mythical state through the election of public officials on local, county, and state levels and then by carrying out the duties of these respective offices.
During the week of Girls State at Southern Miss, participants will hear from many speakers that focus on the importance of being an active part of their community. Southern Miss has been a long time host for Magnolia Girls State and is looking forward to the delegates that will arrive this summer.
