What is American Legion Boys State?

American Legion Boys State, started in 1934, is among the most respected and selective educational programs of government instruction for high school students in the United States. It is a democracy in that all citizens may vote and are eligible to hold office. It aims at all times to make its program of training in functional citizenship effective through creating a wide range of opportunities for participation in the various agencies of government. By participating in Boys State, young men put into practice the theories of government through actual participation in city, county, and state governments organized as a “51st State”.
