The Old State House was the state’s first capitol building.

Could your daughter use a little girl power? A day-long event at The Old State House Museum and Clinton Presidential Center is ready to deliver that and more.

Girl Power, an event exclusively for eighth grade girls, focuses on "finding your voice and speaking your mind."

The event is sponsored by the hosting venues and Girl Scouts Diamonds of Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas, but students do not need to be Girl Scouts participants to attend.

The day will include:

  • Time to explore the recently redesigned First Ladies of Arkansas exhibit at The Old State House Museum.
  • A chance to develop a platform or issue like those of Arkansas's First Ladies.
  • One-on-one conversations with Arkansas' first ladies and governors during lunch.
  • Time to practice media skills
  • Education on women leaders in the Clinton administration and the work of Hillary Rodham Clinton as first lady of the United States.

Girl Power takes place fromn 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on Satuday, Jan. 26 and the cost is $10 per student, which includes lunch. Pre-registration is required on the website and more information is available by calling 50-324-8641.
