3 girls standing in front of a flag painting

Natalie Miller, Claudia Church, and Madison Sprigg will be representing the Belpre City School District at Buckeye Girls State this year!

Girls are nominated by their teachers based on their personal qualities, service, and leadership.  Then from this list, a panel of members from the Womens’ Auxiliary selects three girls to attend Buckeye Girls State to represent Belpre City Schools.

Buckeye Girls State is the name given to Ohio's Girls State program, which was designed to educate Ohio's young women in the duties, privileges, rights, and responsibilities of good citizenship. By getting involved in the process, Delegates can learn more about City, County, and State Government in one week than they will learn in an entire semester of high school.

The Ohio American Legion Auxiliary has been a proud sponsor of Buckeye Girls State for the past seventy-five years. The program has been honored by such organizations as Freedom's Foundation at Valley Forge and the National Association of Secondary School Principals.
