Brandy Kosmann, Mary Colton, and Haley Lockwood have been chosen to attend the 66th session of American Legion Auxiliary Wyoming Girls State to be held on the campus of Northwest College in Powell June 7-14, 2008.

American Legion Auxiliary Girls State was established in 1941 and is an annual program designed as a practical experience in self-government, based on Wyoming State Government. Wyoming Girls State was not held in 1944 and 1945 due to WWII. Girls State is non-partisan and non-political in that no existing party is promoted.

The program emphasizes the importance of government in modern life and educates young women in the duties, privileges, rights, and responsibilities of American Citizenship. It awakens a sincere conviction that a well informed, intelligent, participating citizenry is vital to protect and preserve our American institutions and our democracy. These goals are achieved by actual participation in a simulation of the political and governmental process.

Brandy, Mary, and Haley were selected for their outstanding achievements within their school and community, and they are sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary and the American Legion of Big Piney.
