Oklahoma Girls State 2021 Update for Units:
We are looking forward to hosting the 2021 American Legion Auxiliary Oklahoma Girls State session this year.
Due to the pandemic, we are currently working with the university and the Department to determine how we will be allowed to proceed for the session. In January 2021, a decision will be made on whether the program will be in-person or virtual. This decision will impact the number of delegates units are permitted to send and the cost of attendance.
As soon as this decision is made, a notification will be sent to the American Legion Auxiliary Units.
We are committed to hosting a 2021 session and will make the best of either scenario. Thank you for your continued patience during this time.
