Some high school girls from across the state are at Troy University this week, but it's not to take summer classes. They are actually making their own state government.
About 360 high school seniors converged on the Troy Campus for the 63rd Annual Girls’ State.
The girls learn about politics, including state government policies in a hands-on citizenship training program.
Some of Alabama’s leaders like Attorney General Troy King and Lieutenant Governor Lucy Baxley are guest speakers at the week long session.
This is the largest girls’ state session Alabama has ever had.
The delegates will visit the state capitol, meet with Gov. Bob Riley and conduct the assembly’s 4th Legislative Session in the House and Senate Chambers.
