    Nevada Girls State 
    Girls State offers training in the processes of good citizenship as practiced in a democratic society. Each summer, approximately 20,000 enthusiastic young women participate in Girls State sessions across the nation. At Girls State, the "citizens" study City, County, and State government processes. They do this by setting up their own miniature City, County, and State governments. Then, they administer them according to the laws of their particular State.
    All eligible young women who have submitted the required paperwork and fees are accepted.
