The ALA Girls State Program:

The ALA Girls State Program promotes, publicizes, and re-educates the general public and our members about our core program values of serving veterans and their families; To promote who we are, what we do, and why we matter.

Program Information:

American Legion Auxiliary Girls State is a non-partisan program that teaches young women responsible citizenship and love for God and Country.  Since the inception of the ALA Girls State program in 1937, nearly one million young people have had the opportunity to learn first-hand how their state and local government works. High School girls, having completed their junior year spend an intensive week of study, working together as self-governing citizens at Auxiliary sponsored ALA Girls State programs in every state.  they learn how to participate in the functioning of their state's government in preparation for their future roles as responsible adult citizens. 

Two girls are selected from each ALA Girls State program to attend ALA Girls Nation, a national government training program.  ALA Girls Nation "senators" meet for a week in Washington, D.C., where they run for political office, campaign for the passage of legislation and meet with state Representatives and Senators.  Capping off the week of ALA Girls Nation is often a meeting with the President of the United States at The White House.

June 8, 2017, the Sunflower Girls State Program celebrated it's 75th Year! Click the YouTube icon to view the video.
