American Legion Auxiliary Oklahoma Girls State is a premier program for young ladies going into their senior year of high school across the state of Oklahoma. During this weeklong summer camp, delegates create and operate city, county and state governments, while developing leadership skills and an appreciation of their rights as a citizen.
ALA Oklahoma Girls State was first held in 1940 and has been conducted annually by the American Legion Auxiliary, except for two years during World War II and in 2020 when we were forced to cancel due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
ALA Oklahoma Girls State was the first in the nation to have its educational program accredited. Since its inception, more than 30,000 girls have received this valuable citizenship training in Oklahoma.
The 2023 session of ALA Oklahoma Girls State will take place at Oklahoma Christian University from May 28 to June 2, 2023.
