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 20 through Saturday, June 26, 2021. 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.

 Please note the cost of ALA VGS will be $375.00 per delegate plus transportation cost. Please make sure the girls selected can stay for the whole week.

Birth certificates  and proof of legal residency will be required to be presented when applying.  Upon selection as a delegate, the signed Citizen or Legal Residence Status Form from the website must be brought to American Legion Auxiliary Virginia Girls State program along with the other forms required.

 Our objectives:
1- To ensure all ALAVGS delegates are aware of the mission of the American Legion Auxiliary. 
2- To actively encourage all eligible ALAVGS citizens to join the American Legion Auxiliary.
3- To increase participation by highlighting scholarships to participants of ALAVGS.
