American Legion and Auxiliary It has been a whirlwind number of days for Beck-Sherven-Post mem- bers and some North Dakota Boys State and Girls state leaders. William Wilber and Marlys Aubol joined forces with three young repre- sentatives who volunteered to visit area schools with information about American Legion Boys" State and Girls State opportunities. Even Kritzberger, 19 from Hills- boro, 18-year-old Samantha Nord- mark from Rolla, and Dawson Schefter, 18, from Langdon volun- teered to visit over 20 area schools. The group disseminated information about the program and. encouraged high school juniors to attend the pro- grams in June of this year. Boys and Girls State programs are described as an exciting weeklong program that gives participants a firsthand experience running state government. There are no lectures, no classrooms -just hands on situa- tions that let participants take charge and make decisions. The program seeks young men and women who have completed their junior year of high school and are willing to work together in competitions and develop talents and leadership skills. Partici- pants meet new people and experi- ence campus life. North Dakota Boys State alumni include state leaders in business, law and medicine. Also included are for- mer and current members of Con- gress including former governor and United States Sen. John Hoeven, for- mer Gov. and United States Agricul- ture Secretary Ed Schafer, Gov. Doug Burgum and legendary cham- pionship Chicago Bulls and L.A. Lakers coach Phil Jackson. Burgum will attend the 2017 Boys State ses- sion. Sen.

"I love my role at Girls State. I enjoy welcoming the girls who may not have been away from home for the first time. Many youth come to the setting for the first time maybe not understanding what it is all about. Elections for city, county and state government ... participants are drawn into the leadership roles and learn quickly what those responsibilities are. They also have an opportunity to make new friends and from that point they learn about government in a fun way with some skits and pep rallies. As they work together exploring government, many bonds are created between the girls and many who may have been shy about coming in the first p ce do not want to leave their new friends when it is over. They are able to see how the experience is valuable to them," Aubol said. Samantha Nordmark couldn't wait to lace up her shoes and get out on the recruitment trail with the group. "I have gained so much from North Dakota Girls State. This pro- gram changed my life. After attend- ing the program, I have matured intO a much more civic minded commu- nity member with a new respect for the American Legion and Auxiliary members. I have gained some new leadership skills and opportunities as well. I now volunteer my time across the state to help promote the program to high school juniors in hope they, too, will decide to attend Girls State because I know it will change their lives, too," Nordmark said. The dates for the 2017 Bo),s and Girls State are scheduled for June 11 through 16. Boys State is held at the North Dakota State College of Sci- ence in Wahpeton. Girls State is held at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks.
