    • Girls State (for current Juniors)

      The American Legion Girls State program’s mission is to honor those who have brought us our freedom through our enduring commitment to develop young women as future leaders grounded in patriotism and Americanism. The young women become knowledgeable of the democratic process and how our republic form of government works at the state and national levels.

      Each summer, approximately 16,000 young women participate in weeklong Girls State programs across the nation. Every Girls State program operates with the same patriotic values through a nonpartisan curriculum where students assume the roles of government leaders, campaigning in mock parties (often called “Federalists” and “Nationalists”) to become mayors and county and state officials of their ALA Girls State. The program is a weeklong immersive learning experience, hosted on the Campus of Lipsomb University in Nashville where girls live in “cities” within a dormitory-like setting. The learning, experience, memories, and friendships last a lifetime.

      Dates- May 27- June 2
