Saturday, 24. October 2020, Oklahoma City, Camp Congress for Girls Oklahoma City 2020

Event description
Camp Congress for Girls Oklahoma City 2020 is a leadership program that introduces girls ages 8 to 17 to politics. Camp begins with a lesson on the structure of our political system. Each girl will choose to run for a seat in the US House of Representatives, the US Senate or for the presidency. She will create her own campaign with a platform, campaign finance plan, and a political ad. All campers will register to vote and then vote in an election. Once elected to Congress and sworn in, the newly installed members of Congress will learn how to introduce a bill, debate the merits of the bill, lobby fellow legislators, collaborate with the Executive branch and finally vote on the proposed bill. Camp will culminate with a ceremonial signing of the bill by our Ms. President. All participants will receive Certificate of Completion.
The camp day runs from 8am to 3pm. The camp fee includes a GIP logo shirt, all class materials and snacks. For additional information contact us at +1 (202) 660-1457 extension 2, via email at info@girlsinpolitics.com or visit our website at .
