Two outstanding citizens of the American Legion
Georgia Girls State session will be selected by delegates
and staff to attend Girls Nation. The Girls Nation session
will be held at the National 4-H Center, Chevy
Chase, MD, July 18 - July 25, 2020. All expenses of the two
young ladies will be paid.
Each June, the American Legion Auxiliary sponsors Girls
Nation in Washington, D.C. At the close
of the Girls State session, two delegates are then selected
to represent their state as "senators"
at Girls Nation.
At Girls Nation, senators learn how government and
democracy work on a national level. The senators also
tour the Washington D.C. area, which includes special trips
to The White House and Capitol Hill. Appointed
and elected officials are often guest speakers at Girls
Nation. Appointments with U.S. representatives
and senators are also a part of the experience.
