Keystone Girls State is a non-partisan Government and Civics program designed to teach the importance of responsible citizenship
and to empower young women to make a change in their community. Over the course of the week, KGS citizens will be asked to stray out of their
comfort zone and truly challenge themselves to work as a team for the betterment of their city, county, and state.
KGS citizens who are rising senior in high school will spend the week intensively working together to self-govern the state of
"Keystone," meant to model current Pennsylvania's local, county, and state government. Citizens will have the opportunity to campaign and run
for office, draft and present legislation in the KGS House of Representatives and Senate, and to be actively involved in the Judiciary System as
modeled by the state of Pennsylvania.
