The process for registering for ALA Sunflower Girls State is much different than for American Legion Boys State of Kansas. There are no applications for ALA Sunflower Girls State as there are with boy's state. Packets of information are not mailed to the delegates or the sponsors and high schools. A mailing list of previous sponsors and Kansas High Schools is kept by the secretary and on or about the first week of March a flyer will be mailed to the Units and Schools highlighting the program and providing other pertinent information. If you are not receiving one of these flyers and you are a sponsor or high school counselor, please send an email to the secretary and you will be added to the mailing list.
