William Wilber and Marlys Aubol joined forces with three young representatives who vol- unteered to visit area schools with information about American Le- gion Boys State and Girls State op- portunities. Even Kritzberger, age 19 from Hillsboro, 18-year-old Samantha Nordmark from Rolla and Dawson Schefter, 18, from Langdon vol- unteered to visit over 20 area schools. The group disseminated information about the program and encouraged high school jun- iors to attend the programs in June of this year. Boys and Girls State programs are described as an exciting week- long program that gives partici- pants a firsthand experience run- ning state government. There are no lectures, no classrooms -just hands on situations that let par- ticipants take charge and make de- cisions. The program seeks young men and women who have com- pleted their junior year of high school and are willing to work to- gether in competitions and devel- op your talents and leadership skills. Participants meet new peo- ple and experience campus life. North Dakota Boys State alum- ni include state leaders in business, law and medicine. Also included are former and current Members of Congress including former gov- ernor and United States Senator John Hoeven, former Governor and United States Agriculture Sec- retary Ed Schafer, Governor Doug Burgum and legendary champi- onship Chicago Bulls and L.A. Lakers coach Phil Jackson. Gov- ernor Burgum will attend the 2017 Boys State session.

Despite the fact proponents know the mere mention of gov- ernment or anything close to it may cause eyes to roll, there is no shortage of excitement for the programs from attendees. "Boys State completely changed my life. The American Legion sees the potential in young men and women and gives them an opportunity to explore it. The program brings together youth from all corners of the state and gives them the opportunity to cre- ate run their own govern- ment. From Governor, legisla- tors, ag commissioner and mayors, participants learn the responsi- bilities of each office.

They are able to see how the experience is valuable to them," Aubol said. Eighteen year old Samantha Nordmark from Rolla 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 Gifts State. This pro- gram changed my life. After at- tending the program, I have ma- tured into a much more civic minded community member with a new respect for the American Le- gion and Auxiliary members. I 'have gained some new leader- ship 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 at- tend Girls State because I know it will change their lives, too," Nord- mark said. The dates for the 2017 Boys and Girls State are scheduled for June 11 through 16. However, Boys State is held at the North Dakota State College of Science in Wahpeton. Girls State is held at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks. More information and registration forms are available at www.NDGirlsState.org or www.NDBoysState.org.
