Badger Girls State is a very important part of the American Legion Auxiliary's Americanism program.  This program is designed to train future stateswomen in the science of government.  The purpose of this program:

  • To develop leadership and pride in American citizens.
  • To educate citizens about our system of government.
  • To instill a greater understanding of American traditions.
  • To stimulate a desire to maintain our democratic government processes.

Badger Boys State is an experience like none other.  It may be quickly described as a program which teaches the workings of government "by doing;" but it is much more than that.  It is a week long journey through a great many things that make us who we are; leaders, friends, students, athletes, and most of all citizens of our respective cities, towns, and our great state.
