Boys State is among the most respected and selective educational programs of government instruction for high school students.
It is a participatory program where each participant becomes a part of the operation of
his local, county and state government.
At American Legion Boys State, participants are exposed to the rights and privileges, the duties and the responsibilities of a franchised citizen. The training is objective and practical with city, county and state governments operated by the students elected to the various offices.
