Each year, Arkansas youth have an opportunity to be nominated and selected to participate as Arkansas Boys State and Girls State delegates in a weeklong, transformative program with their peers from around the State. The goal and purpose of the educational programs are to teach high school students through hands-on experience about civic responsibility, rights, privileges and duties. The programs are a collaborative partnership with high schools and the American Legion for Boys State and American Legion Auxiliary for Girls State. Acorn High School nominees for 2021 Arkansas Boys State is Justice Neufeld and for Arkansas Girls State is Raeghan Weddle. Congratulations, Justice and Raeghan!
