Buckeye Boys or Girls State
Are you interested in learning more about how our government works while making new friends from all over Ohio? Then please consider attending Buckeye Boys/Girls State.
These programs provide a practical exercise in the operation of a democratic government as the students govern a fictious 51st state. They will run for election and will be appointed to serve in offices within the Legislative Branch and in Cabinet/Administrative Departments at the State, County and Local Government levels. All Buckeye Boys State Delegates will be required to attend a local orientation meeting in April or May 2022. Additional information on the program can be found online at http://www.ohiobuckeyeboysstate.com/
. Buckeye Girls State Delegates will be required to complete an online orientation at http://buckeyegirlsstate.org/
Boys State will be held at Miami University in Oxford, OH: June 12–19, 2022
Girls State will be held at University of Mt. Union in Alliance, OH: June 12-18, 2022
