The American Legion has a program called Boys and Girls State. This is a leadership program where students can create their own government and have the opportunity (not guaranteed) to earn college credit.
Applications are online and they are due April 30, 2011. This year’s program is at CSU Pueblo and runs June 5 through June 11. If you are interested you can pick up information from me in the counseling office or you can visit the web sites.
