Texas Bluebonnet Girls State attendees are nominated, sponsored, and registered through their local American Legion Auxiliary unit or high school. There is not a centralized application process, and TBGS does not consider applications submitted directly from students. For more information about how to acquire a TBGS nomination and sponsorship, contact your school counselor or your local American Legion Auxiliary unit. 

Registration for ALA units opened on March 1st.  Texas high schools may register students directly beginning on March 15th.  If you need further information or you are an ALA unit or high school who needs information about the registration process, please email the Girls State Registrar at registrar@alatexas.org.
