Brittany Giddens was chosen to represent Georgiana School at the 2012 session of American Legion Auxiliary Alabama Girls State, held on the campus of Troy University in Troy.

For one week, she became a citizen in an imaginary state, taking part in the political life of her community, primarily through campaigning for and electing city, county and state offices. She learned about the operation of government by participating in party caucuses and through the election process. Giddens was selected to attend Girls State because of her outstanding leadership.

Sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary, Girls State is a laboratory of practical Government.
