ALA VA Girls State



“Celebrating a History of Service”


ALA Virginia Girls State is being held on the campus of Longwood University from Sunday, June 21 through Saturday, June 27, 2020. This program is for females who have successfully completed their junior year of high school and have one more year remaining to be considered. Selection should be for those who illustrate leadership, character, scholarship, loyalty and service to their school and community. During this weeklong program the participants have the opportunity to learn how their state and local governments work.
