American Legion Auxiliary Oklahoma Girls State is a premier program for young ladies 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.
After discussions with the University of Oklahoma and the Oklahoma Auxiliary President, the Girls State Committee has made the decision to host a virtual 2021 session. While this will be different than the traditional in-person session, we are hopeful this experience will be just as impactful
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.
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.
