Alaina Palmer of Palmyra, NY
Empire Girls State is an educational Americanism program developed to offer a better perspective of the practical government operations and to emphasize the integral part that individuals have within a democratic government. This program, which has been accredited by the New York State Board of Regents for inclusion in the National Program on Non-Collegiate Sponsored Instruction (National PONSI), is a non-partisan attempt to teach the love of "God and Country" to America’s youth.

Alaina will participate in a week-long, educational experience with hands-on workshops on government and the political process, designed to create a government from the county to the state level. 360 High School Juniors from across the state will learn the privileges and responsibilities of Citizenship and a greater understanding of their role within democracy. They will also learn proper flag etiquette and participate in the creation and execution of either a flag lowering or raising ceremony.

The 2011 session of Empire Girls State is scheduled to occur fthe last week of June on the campus of SUNY Brockport.
