2023 Girls State

American Legion Auxiliary Minnesota Girls State will be held June 11-17, 2023, at Bethel University in Arden Hills, Minnesota.  The program fee will remain at $300 this year.

The 2023 Girls State Registration deadline has been extended to: April 15th , 2023

ALA Minnesota Girls State will be here before we know it! We, as the committee, would love to see participation from as many Units as possible this year as we recommit ourselves to teaching the next generation of young women responsible citizenship, the principles of our nation’s founders, and respect for God and Country.

As one of the premier programs of the American Legion Auxiliary, we would love to fill all available spots in the program this year.
