How to Apply

American Legion Auxiliary Oklahoma Girls State 2018
Information regarding application process

Oklahoma Girls State is an educational program sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary (ALA) focused on government, leadership, and patriotism.  It is held on the campus of the University of Oklahoma from May 27 through June 1, 2018.  Delegates must be junior girls in High School this year.  Delegates should have high moral character, leadership qualities, an ability to work with others, and an interest in government.  Delegates must salute the flag of the United States and show it proper respect.

There are two ways to apply to OK Girls State.  Please check this list to determine if the high school (HS) is sponsored by an ALA unit.

If the HS is listed, the student should first contact the HS counselor regarding the application process.  If the counselor has not been contacted by the ALA, the interested party may then contact the local contact for the ALA on the list. If there are subsequent openings or cancellations, additional alternates from those schools may be chosen based on availability and ranking of applicants.  Alternates will be notified so they need to be prepared to be called on short notice.

Applications are due to Cindy Fain by May 31st, 2018.  Selections and notifications will be made by April 15, 2018.  If chosen, the delegate will be responsible for the $200 application fee which is due by May 4, 2018.  The delegate is free to seek sponsorship from a business or organization.

If the delegate goes home or does not show, the fee is forfeited.  Please notify us immediately if a delegate is not able to attend so that we may notify an alternate.  If notified prior to the deadline (May 18), the application fee will be refunded.  We cannot refund any fee after May 18, 2018.

I am happy to answer any questions.  The best method of contact is to email me.  If you call, please leave a message.  I work full-time and like all of our staff, am a volunteer.  Out of respect for my employer, I only return calls after business hours.
