What week in June is the most fun a high school junior could have on Central Washington University‚Äôs campus in Ellensburg, WA? The next session of the American Legion Evergreen State will be here soon. Currently, American Legion Post 138, 7515 Cirque Dr W is looking for interested and qualified high school juniors who would like to participate.

Evergreen State aims to simulate and emulate Washington State government through a fun and engaging program. You‚Äôll help build your very own government from the ground up… Cities, Counties, Political Parties, Courts, a Legislature, and even elect a Governor. You‚Äôll be guided through the tools and resources you need to succeed by actual elected officials and business leaders. Then it is up to you to make your system of government work. It won‚Äôt always be easy, but you‚Äôll have fun and learn along the way.
You will have the opportunity for one-on-one interaction with some of the most powerful leaders in our state. Plus, thousands of dollars in scholarships are given out each year to students participating in the program. Every student attending now also has the opportunity to earn college credits for their full participation in the program.
Throughout the week, you‚Äôll also have the opportunity to earn several different scholarships reserved specifically for students attending the program. Plus, two young citizens from each program will be selected for an all-expenses paid trip to participate in the American Legion Nation program in Washington, D.C.
