On Tuesday and Thursday, the citizens had the opportunity to interact with each other, the staff and the multi-talented political advisors in our live Google Meets. These sessions gave everyone an opportunity to say hi, share stories about their hometowns and get an overview of Empire Girls State. We discussed how EGS works, which issues affected the different counties and EGS as a whole, Americanism, elections, public policy, why political participation is important and how and why a person should get involved in local issues. The citizens engaged in some creative problem-solving and made insightful applications to “real-world” problems.
