Attiya Latif of Smithsburg High School recently attended the Maryland American Auxiliary weeklong Girls State Program.

She was sponsored by Funkstown Post 211 American Legion Auxiliary.

Girls State participants learn how to participate in the functioning of their state’s government in preparation for their future roles as responsible citizens.

Attiya was one of two girls from the Maryland program to attend Girls Nation.

Girls Nation participants meet for a week in Washington D.C., where they run for political office, campaign for the passage of legislation and possibly meet with state representatives and senators.

Attiya is the American Legion Maryland state oratorical champion and attended the Legion National championship in Indianapolis.
