2021 ALANMGS Virtual Session Update
June 3, 2021
We want to thank you for your continued support of the American Legion Auxiliary New Mexico Girls State program. As we draw closer to the time for ALANMGS 2021 we have some unfortunate news. After months of marketing the program, reaching out to schools and local media we have not been able to get a large enough group of young women registered to make a 2021 ALANMGS Virtual session feasible. At this time the ALANMGS Board has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 American Legion Auxiliary New Mexico Girls State session. The young women that took the time to register have been contacted and are being given the opportunity to attend the ALA Nevada Girls State virtual session this summer. While we would have liked to hold an ALA NM Girls State session, we know that we wouldn’t have been able to provide as robust of an experience with the low numbers of delegates.
The American Legion Auxiliary New Mexico Girls State will be back for the 2022 session, and we look forward to working with our New Mexico young women in person back at the ENMU campus in Portales, NM. We plan to make a big push this year and get back into schools and share the word about our program for 2022. We hope we can count on your support in getting the word out for next summer’s session as you will be integral to revitalizing our program after our two-year break.
See you in 2022! The American Legion Auxiliary New Mexico Girls State Board
