Girls State 2020

ZoeSmithZoeSmith 5 replies2 threads New Member
Hi Guys,
I'm currently a junior in High School, and really want to attend Girls State in California. I'm going for my interview in Jan, but want to start preparing now.

My Scores:
4.0 GPA both freshman and sophomore year
Varsity basketball for 2 years
Over 500 volunteer hours
No veterans in the family

If anyone has been to Girls State, how should I use my stats in my interview to help me get into Girls State. Or, in general, any tips? What should I mention?

Thanks!

    Hi there-
    My daughter went this summer, in California, and had a great time. Search around the ALA Girls State site and you will find sample interview questions. She practiced those and was selected. Good luck!

    Agree with 1st post, there are a lot of sample questions online. Also, it differs from each school/state because some are more competitive than others. Some general tips are: know who sponsors Girls State, make sure you have a solid reason for why you want to attend if they ask, and make sure you can answer them if they ask about your volunteering/extracurriculars and stuff like that.

    I was a delegate this past summer (different state though) and it is worth it!! Good luck.
