JSA States & Elected Officials

JSA States & Elected Officials

JSA is divided into 10 states, led by an elected Governor and appointed Cabinet members. Chapters collectively form regions within the states and are responsible for planning and executing events and activities including conferences and national activism projects.

As a student-run organization, JSA members, under the leadership of the Council of Governors (body of the 10 elected Governors), initiate, plan, and implement activities, conferences, and make policy recommendations. A JSA student sits on the JSAF Board of Directors and as a Trustee.

The Junior State of America is composed of ten states and territories that together from the national organization.
These states (Arizona Territory, Pacific Northwest, Northern California, Southern California, Texas, Mid-Atlantic, Northeast, Midwest, Ohio River Valley, and the Southeast Territory) are separate entities with separate governments. Each state or territory has its own constitution that broadly outlines its governing protocol. The vast majority of power lies with the individual states and territories.


JSA Arizona includes the states of Arizona and New Mexico.
