The National and Federal parties convened on Flag Day, June 14, 2016, to pick their state party officials. Because the Girls State program is entirely non-partisan, mock political parties are used to show how a two-party system works. Girls State citizens elected precinct, county and state party officials and wrote their own party platform.
State Federal Party officials are Chair Ashton Woods, Vice-Chair Amy Stahl, House Whip Haley Hefner and Senate Whip Kendall Smidovec.
State National Party Officials are Chair Danielle Maldonado, Vice-Chair Kelsey Kistner, House Whip Kelsey Ehrig and Senate Whip Ellie Hager.
