There are two ways to apply for ALA Oklahoma Girls State. You may attend through a sponsorship by your local American Legion Auxiliary Unit/American Legion Post or as an at-large delegate. The registration process is the same, the different occurs at time of payment.
Local American Legion Auxiliary Unit Sponsorship
Most local American Legion Auxiliary Units financially sponsor delegates to attend Oklahoma Girls State from their communities. Contact your local American Legion Auxiliary Unit or American Legion Post to learn more about their local sponsorship application.
Please note, this is the list from the 2022-2023 school year. We are updating the new list and will post it soon. In the meantime, reach out to the contact listed and let them know you are interested in applying for a scholarship to attend Girls State.
Students wishing to attend ALA Oklahoma Girls State that are not sponsored by a local American Legion Auxiliary Unit or American Legion Post may enroll independently.
The delegate will be responsible for paying or securing local sponsorship for the $325 camp registration fee.
To complete your independent registration, please mail in a check of $325 made out to ALA Oklahoma Girls State to the following PO Box.
ALA Oklahoma Girls State
PO Box 720128
Norman, OK 73070
Your registration is not considered complete and you won’t be eligible to attend unless the fee is paid by May 1, 2024.
Many delegates who live in communities without American Legion Auxiliary Units and who need help covering the delegate fee have successfully raised funds from local sources. School districts, civic organizations (Kiwanis Club, Elks Lodge, Rotary, etc.) occasionally pay the delegate fee.
If you are being financially sponsored by an organization or school, please contact Natalie Wood at email@example.com and include the contact information for the person responsible for the donation in your registration form.
The 2024 Girls State Application will be closed on April 30, 2024.
Please contact Jackie Crawford at firstname.lastname@example.org or Natalie Wood and email@example.com with any questions you may have.
