advantages of promoting this program. Along with the experience of a lifetime
for the girls, it also provides them with information about our government,
patriotism, and how to move forward as a young adult.

Legion Auxiliary Unit or a local business or other organization. You will be able to

Welcome to the new American Legion Auxiliary Illini Girls
State website. While a website is always a work in
progress, we hope you will find the information here
valuable as you prepare to become a citizen or if you are
looking for information to become a citizen. Here you will
find information about scholarships, a packing list, an
example of the day to day schedule and much more. I
look forward to improving our website everyday and
making it as user friendly as possible to our members,
citizens, alumni, and public.
