ALA Girls Nation

Two delegates from ALA NM Girls State and two delegates from American Legion NM Boys State will have the honor of representing New Mexico in Washington D.C. as Senators at the American Legion Auxiliary Girls Nation and American Legion Boys Nation programs. ALA Girls Nation and AL Boys Nation Senators are a select group of 200 young men and women from across the United States that gather to discuss bills, meet their U.S. Senators and/or staff on Capitol Hill, experience the sites and history of our nation's capital and may even get the opportunity to visit the White House and meet our President. For more information on the national programs please visit their websites at:


ALA Girls Nation Program

July 20-27, 2024

AL Boys Nation Program

July 19-26, 2024

Delegates will be selected through a multi stage selection process which includes being selected by staff for their stand out attitude, participation and abilities, interviewed by a board on their qualifications and opinions on current event topics, and then given time to give a speech to the entire ALA NM Girls State body and be elected by the delegates.

All expenses are paid for this trip by the Department of New Mexico American Legion Auxiliary/American Legion. Delegates are expected to return to the following year's ALA NM Girls State program as a Junior Counselor staff member and share their experiences with new delegates, as well as attend an American Legion Auxiliary Department Conference to share their experiences.


The 2025 session of American Legion Auxiliary New Mexico Girls State is TBD.


More details will be provided at session by past ALA Girls Nation Senators.
