We strongly encourage you to write a bill for Girls State. It will make your experience fun and educational. On occasion, bills adopted at Girls State have gone on to become actual Idaho law. Furthermore, Girls State bills may also get some media attention. Writing a bill and getting it passed is also good to list on a resume or scholarship application.
Below are documents that will help you in writing your bill.

Bills need to be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 1, 2017. Due to the amount of work that needs to be done to get the bills ready for the Girls State Session, we cannot accept any bills submitted after June 1st. Please be sure to bring an electronic copy of your bill on a flash drive to Girls State in the event of errors during submission.
If you have any questions, contact Legislative Chair Amanda Erickson at 208-716-6311 or at email@example.com.
