OFFICIAL STATEMENT REGARDING COVID-19 (Coronavirus) from American Legion Auxiliary Oklahoma Girls State
The American Legion Auxiliary Oklahoma Girls State Committee has worked with the University of Oklahoma and determined that due to the COVID 19 crisis ALA Oklahoma Girls State 2020 will be cancelled. This decision has been made to protect all of our attendees and staff. This decision was not made lightly and will be only the second time in our history that we have not held a program.
The statement from the University can be found at http://www.ou.edu/coronavirus.
We know this would have been a great Girls State and will miss meeting and learning from all of the attendees. If you are still interested in the Samsung Scholarship please work with Cheyanne White and firstname.lastname@example.org.
American Legion Auxiliary units that paid for an attendee please contact Jennifer Shaw at email@example.com to discuss your refund.
We wish everyone the best Senior year and stay safe.
