I have heard that Girls/Boys State gets the same amount of points as the Eagle scout...is this true? Also, will something like having a Black belt in Martial Arts be looked upon like being an eagle scout... It shows athleticism, dedication and leadership. One more thing...can anyone tell me a little about Girl's state? I was just accepted, but I really do not know much about it(i.e - is there running and pt involved because I am getting screws taken out of my ankle the week before and I do not think that I'll be up to running) Any other info. would be greatly appreciated as well!
Thanks for all of your help!
I doubt it. Girls State is a leadership activity - if you are chosen you attend a week long leadership conference. That is my understanding.I have heard that Girls/Boys State gets the same amount of points as the Eagle scout...is this true?
"Love for God and Country" are basic tenets of the American Legion. American Legion members are veterans of the US military. Whether it gains you points or not, Girl's State is an experience that will help you grow as a citizen of a country to which you aspire to be a leader.Thanks momoftwins! Hopefully West Point will look upon my martial arts experience favorably. Would you happen to know how WP and the other SAs look at Girl's State? Thanks.
