Girls State scheduled for June

The American Legion Auxiliary Iowa Girls State program is one of the premier programs sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary.

The program was started by a dream of four women to teach young women about the political process.

At the ALA Girls State girls develop leadership skills, confidence and action-based understanding of the government process.

Girls run for offices at the city, county, and state levels. High school junior girls are eligible to attend.

The 2021 Girls State will be held at Drake University June 20-25.
