Hoosier Boys State, Hoosier Girls State Nominations Needed

Plymouth High School teachers are sending in nominations for Hoosier State. Two boys and two girls will be sponsored by the American Legion Post 27 to serve as Plymouth’s delegates this summer.

Nominations of these 11th-grade students will be accepted in the Plymouth High School Guidance office until Wednesday at 3:15 p.m. ET.

Hoosier Boys State and Hoosier Girls State provides young men and women an opportunity to learn how politics impacts daily lives. The delegates will experience first-hand how Indiana’s government process works by actively participating in a simulated government setup. Students will have an opportunity to run for offices of their choice from the local up to state level positions. To win an office, delegates will have to interact with over 600 peers and earn their votes, compromise and negotiate to get bills passed, and follow laws and procedures set up by their establishment.

Students chosen will receive a scholarship from the American Legion, which will cover room and board for the week-long event this summer.
