Approximately 870 young men from every part of Wisconsin will come to Badger Boys State this June. Upon arrival at the Ripon College campus, they will be grouped into cities and counties which will form a “51st state.” For eight days, the citizens of this “new state” will carry out all the main functions of city, county, and state government using basic laws and fundamental procedures of the State of Wisconsin as their guide. The program is designed to teach its “citizens” that the American form of government is stronger and more vital in today’s world than ever before.

Badger Girls State Delegates:
Damitu Hamda
Jillian Ybanez
Faith Brings

American Legion Auxiliary Badger Girls State (ALABGS) is designed similarly to Badger Boys State to train future stateswomen in the science of government and to develop their leadership skills. The program has grown to over 725 citizens yearly and continues to be a major project of the Department of Wisconsin’s American Legion Auxiliary. 

Congratulations to our selected students!
