Hello and welcome to the American Legion Auxiliary Illini Girls State website. This is a very exciting year for us. We will be celebrating our Diamond Anniversary! 75 years of working with youth around the state to teach them about government and providing them with an opportunity to enrich their writing, debating, and voting knowledge. Please browse the website and see what a great program we provide. There are some areas that are currently under construction including the 2015 application. Please visit the site frequently to see the completed sections. I look forward to seeing many young ladies at our program this year. If you have questions, please feel free to contact me by e-mail or telephone. Enjoy and I hope to see you June 21st, 2015!
