The student must complete the application, obtain a recommendation from a school official, and write a short essay regarding their interest in Girls State.
- Applications are due by February 24, 2020
- Selections and notifications will be made by March 11, 2020
- If chosen, the delegate will be responsible for the $275 application fee, which is due by March 28, 2020. The delegate is free to seek sponsorship from a business or organization.
At-large applications may not be accepted from anyone attending a high school sponsored by an ALA unit, or someone who was not chosen by the local Auxiliary.
Oklahoma Girls State is limited to 448 girls and requests far exceed our capacity. When considering applications from delegates-at-large, the Girls State Committee will accept the best applicants statewide giving consideration to the fact that we would like representation from as many different schools as possible. A limit of two students representing a particular high school will be accepted at-large through the Girls State committee until the state is adequately represented. 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.
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. We cannot refund any fee after May 15, 2020.
