Friday was Girl Scout Day at the Capitol, and hundreds of Girl Scouts marched to the Statehouse to learn more about government and the history of Illinois.
About 2,000 Girl Scouts gathered in the Illinois capital to earn their Citizenship badge.
Kate Peters of Girl Scouts of Central Illinois says during part of the expo, the girls spoke to women in different careers.
“How impactful for them to see stuff like that and know, 'hey one day that can be me,'" Peters said. "One day, one of these girls will be governor of Illinois.”
