Boys’ State and Girls’ State Selections

Jake Kroutil & Giselle Alcantar to Represent PHS in Sacramento


Rosali Flores and Karen Hidalgo

California, and many states across the country, offer a summer program for juniors to create a mock government. Each high school in California selects two delegates, a boy and a girl, to represent their school in the mock government. These programs are called American Legion Boys State and American Legion Auxiliary (ALA) Girls State. This program allows students to go to Sacramento State University to create their own Government, elected officials and learn more about the way the Government system works.
