ALA Colorado Girls State is a week-long program that runs from June 9, 2019 to June 14, 2019 and will be held at University of Northern Colorado in Greeley. It's designed for young ladies, between their junior and senior year of high school, to simulate the Colorado government. They hold elections for public office, write, debate and pass bills. They are taught patriotism and learn the ethics of being a responsible citizen. It is a week filled with excitement and pride.
This program is the pride and joy of the American Legion Auxiliary and a wonderful opportunity and experience for the young women who attend.
Our application consists of four sections, including three essay questions. You will not be able to save your application and resume it at a later date, so make sure you're in a position to answer all questions in one sitting. All applications are due by April 15, 2019 and those who are accepted will be notified by their local Unit shortly thereafter.
If you have any questions, please contact your local American Legion Auxiliary Unit.
