Boys State Support

American Legion Boys State is among the most respected and selective educational programs of government instruction for U.S. high-school students.  This is a participatory program in which students become part of the operation of local, county and state government.

At Boys State, participants learn the rights, privileges and responsibilities of franchised citizens. The training is objective and centers on the structure of city, county and state governments. Operated by students elected to various offices, Boys State activities include legislative sessions, court proceedings, law-enforcement presentations, assemblies, bands, choruses and recreational programs.

An Investment of $350 will send one boy to Boys State.
