Meagan Borth, Rachel Newberg and Julie of Gardner Edgerton High School have been chosen by Unit 19 of Gardner to attend the 71rst annual session of the Sunflower Girls state on the Washburn campus. Sunflower girls’ state is sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary.
Joining the other 325 young women who have just completed their junior year of high school, the trio will ‘Learn by Doing’ the political system involved in the government of Kansas.
Beginning at the city level, advancing to county and the state, the girls will register to vote, file nomination papers, conduct political campaigns and prepare and present speeches. The girls will be housed in the Living Learning center at Washburn.
