Unit/Recruiter Resources

Recruiters: Whether you are a Unit, District, Post or School, we need your help recruiting high quality delegates to attend this year’s ALA Evergreen Girls State program! It is important that recruiters fully understand the program. Please review the website and the materials below. All of these materials are available to print and begin using immediately in your recruiting efforts. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your District Chairperson, a member of the Girls State Committee or info@evergreengirlsstate.com.

2024 Application & Registration:  This year, applications for ALA Evergreen Girls State will be accepted online through our website. Units/Posts may send their recruits through the online application process and those applications will be sent to the Units (noted on the application). Units/Posts may also choose to run their own selection process or use the paper version of the application (linked below) and e-mail in the form to info@evergreengirlsstate.com

The cost to attend ALA Evergreen Girls State for 2024 is $520; of this, $320 is tuition paid by the Units/Posts and $200 is a registration fee paid by the citizens. Units/Posts also may pay the full $520 for the citizens if they choose, however, we feel it is helpful when the citizens are invested themselves in attending. We do not want to turn any citizens away due to inability to pay the registration fee.

If citizens apply who are not currently working with a Unit/Post but need a sponsor, we will work to match them with a Unit/Post in their area for sponsorship. If you are a Unit/Post who has funds, but does not have any citizens, please use the Selection Form below to send in your check and indicate you are willing to be a sponsor. If you have recruited citizens but are in need of additional funds, please reach out to us and we will assist in matching sponsorships.

Once Units/Posts have made their final selections of which citizens will be sponsored to attend, please fill out the Reservation Form below with their names. This form should be sent in with the Unit/Post’s check to the ALA, Dept. of WA/EGS: Department Treasurer P.O. Box 5867, Lacey, WA 98509-5867 . 

Once the citizens’ names have been received and the tuition fee has been paid by the Unit/Post, the Unit/Post’s job in this process is done! The citizens will be sent the registration forms electronically and the EGS Committee will follow-up with them for payment and signatures as needed. Units/Districts should work to schedule in-person orientation sessions with their citizens as desired.
