North Dakota Boys and Girls State
The North Dakota Boys and Girls State Programs have a history of offering our students a strong foundation in building upon ideas and teaching valuable leadership skills to our students.  Below you will find information providing specific details and recruitment on the 2018 programs.  I encourage our high school principals to find at least one boy and/or girl candidate, who will be entering their senior year of high school, with whom to share this opportunity, and help our effort to keep this tradition going in our state.
Program Information: 
  • Both programs will take place June 10 – 15
    • Girls State hosted on the campus of UND in Grand Forks.
    • Boys State hosted on the campus of NDSCS in Wahpeton.
  • Interested students are encouraged to learn more at: and
    • The late fee has been waived, and students should contact their local American Legion Post so they may cover the registration costs for students to attend. 
Recruitment Tools:   If you have any question, please contact Josh Jeffers, Boys State Recruitment Director at or General Girls State Contact at or (701) 314-2460.
