Girls State and Boys State will be virtual!!  We are going virtual for the first time in over 80 years of these programs.  The 2021 program will be virtual and conducted in the Zoom format, June 14-15th. The packets the boys and girls will receive will have all essential information to attend this program including access to breakout sessions and joint sessions with Oregon Boys State. Yes, we are partnering the Oregon Boys State Committee to share guest speakers that we feel will have an impact on both boys and girls. We will also have guest speakers for the boys and girls only. This is a huge endeavor and we are very excited to bring this to you. See links below and on Girls State Pages.
