Utah Girls State 2011

I am writing this as a thank you to all the units who selected girls, prepared the girls at orientations, meet the buses on Monday morning, or in some other way supported the Girls State Staff in this years session of girls state. We can never say thank you enough to all of you wonderful ladies who give us the chance to spend a week with the best and brightest the State of Utah has to offer.

It was a successful year at girls state and as one girls state girl said on her evaluation,
What was your best experience?
I really liked how you throw like a jillion girls together who have never seen each other in their lives and then by Wednesday, they're all best friends. It just kinda makes the week.
Thank you to all who helped or attended Girls State 2011, you make the week!!!
See you at Convention!!!
