Texas Legislators Honor 75th Anniversary of Bluebonnet Girls State

posted in: 2019 Session | 0

A resolution was made on April 30 by Representative Israel and Senator Huffman in the Texas House and Senate, respectively, celebrating 75 years of the Texas Girls State program.

Each session of Girls State in recent years has hosted hundreds of young women and educated them on the rights and privileges of American citizenship. While the program has changed over the years, the core ideas have remained the same-Service, Inclusivity, Strength, Teamwork, Education, Resilience.

We’re excited to share these ideologies with a new group of amazing young women from all over Texas arriving for the 2019 session.
