Boys and Girls State is in full swing just up the road in Natchitoches at Northwestern State. Boys and Girls State, once known as Pelican State, moved from LSU in Baton Rouge to NSU several years ago.
ABC 31 News Reporter Sarah LeBoeuf says this is where future leaders are molded.
Boys State is sponsored by American Legion and Girls State is sponsored by American Legion Auxiliary.
