  • Governor Scott Walker Speaks at Badger Girls State Inauguration

    Madison – Tonight, Governor Scott Walker addresses young women from across Wisconsin who were selected to attend the 72nd session of Badger Girls State.  This is a remarkable 6-day experience in which participants are grouped into cities and counties, thereby forming a “51st state.”  Over the course of the week, students have the ability to elect their own representatives at a local and state level in order to carry out the functions of their cities, counties, and state, which provides them with a first-hand experience and deeper understanding of representation and government in the United States.

    “Badger Girls State is an important program that will help these young women better understand how government works,” Governor Walker said.  “As they work together throughout the week they will also develop skills in communication, teamwork, and leadership, all of which I am sure they will carry with them as valuable tools to help them achieve much in their future endeavors.”
