ALA Utah Girls State 2020 Session Has Been Canceled
The ALA Utah Girls State program has been faced with tough decisions in light of the outbreak of COVID-19
across our nation. We have closely monitored updates from medical professionals, the Centers for Disease
Control (CDC), as well as our state and local officials. With growing concerns surrounding the safety
of our staff, citizens and general public, we have decided to cancel our 2020 session. This was a tough,
yet responsible decision, which was not made lightly and was discussed with Weber State University and
the ALA Utah Girls State Board.
For those citizens who have mailed in their registration and fees to the ALA Department of Utah office,
personal checks will be returned to the address on the check. If that address is not correct, please
contact the office at 801-539-1015 or
firstname.lastname@example.org. Cashier checks will be deposited and a check
written to whomever sent the check. For citizens who paid their sponsoring ALA Unit, the ALA Unit will
receive the refund and will be responsible for getting the money back to them. Please be patient with
us as this process will indeed take some time to accomplish.
Our hearts are heavy that circumstances have led to the cancellation of the session. Please direct
questions to the phone number or email address listed above.

The American Legion Auxiliary Utah Girls State is a week-long program
where girls learn more about the inner workings of our government at the
city, county, state and national levels. Girls will create and run a
state of their own and also gain a deeper understanding of our nation,
flag, and those men and women who have served this great country …
Girls State is more than leadership, music and arts, mock trials and elections.
It's creating lifelong friendships and gaining a valuable education that will
last you your lifetime.

community leaders and public officials and create new friendships with students

service experiences …"
