Selection Process

As there are 90+ American Legion Auxiliary units throughout Arkansas and approximately 800 girls are chosen to attend AGS, the selection methods vary based on logistics, circumstances and established local procedures. Some selected delegates are long-standing Junior Members of an Auxiliary Unit (female members under age of 18) who meet the qualifications, while others are chosen by school personnel with names forwarded to local units. Some potential delegates’ names are forwarded by schools to local units who then interview the list and make the selection based on the interviews. Any girl interested in attending ALA Arkansas Girls State should begin by contacting their High School Counselor.
