CHS Students Accepted to AR Boys and Girls State 2021
April 28, 2021
The Cabot School District is proud to recognize the 11 students who have been accepted into the Arkansas Boys and Girls State program.
Arkansas Boys and Girls State is an immersive program in civics education designed for high school juniors. Students are chosen based on leadership, character and honesty, academic achievement, scholarship, cooperativeness and community participation and service by a committee of teachers and American Legion and Legion Auxiliary representatives.
The local American Legion Post 71 and Legion Auxiliary, along with local businesses, sponsor these students. It is an honor to be chosen to attend this program, and the skills they learn will last a lifetime.
AR Boys State will be held virtually May 30 - June 4. AR Girls State will be held virtually May 30 - June 1.
At Boys and Girls State, delegates become knowledgeable in the democratic process and how our government works at the state and national levels. Each summer, a diverse group of students from around the state participate in this week-long program. They assume roles as government leaders, campaign for their party affiliation, and some will become elected officials at the city and state level. Delegates are given practical instruction on the duties and responsibilities of both citizens and their elected officials.
Congratulations to our Boys and Girls State delegates:
