Seven Kimberly High School students were selected for Badger State programs this summer. At Badger State, they learn the practical application of citizenship, learn about how their state government functions and develop leadership skills. The program is a week-long event for selected students who are enrolled in their junior year of high school.
- Badger Girls State delegates: Danielle Beyer, Emma Carew, Taylor Hurst and Cassi Sesto
- Badger Boys State delegates: Max Volk, Nick Beck and Will Wegner
At Badger State, the student delegates create a fictional fifty-first state. As citizens of this “new” state, they “learn by doing” as they function on city, county and state levels by electing officials and conducting business on those levels.
Every attendee is encouraged to participate in some level of the governmental process. Badger Girls State is organized by the American Legion Auxiliary and held at UW-Oshkosh. Badger Boys State is organized by the American Legion and held at Ripon College.
Great job to these students for pursuing excellence in co-curricular activities!
