"Missouri Boys State was a pivotal part of my youth. I learned so much about myself and others, as well as government and democracy, during my week in Warrensburg. It makes you more fully appreciate this incredible country in which we live, and this experiment we call democracy. I firmly believe it is an experience not to be missed."

Welcome to Missouri Boys State

The American Legion Boys State of Missouri is an eight-day hands on experience in the operation and fundamentals of government. Missouri Boys State draws together the best and brightest high school juniors to help lead them down the path of individual success and leadership through "doing," not just learning.

One idea, paramount above any other at Missouri Boys State: That the individual is the one with the power to change the world. Whether an athlete or politician, journalist or scientist, each and every one of us has the power to make a difference in the world.

Using our democratic system as a basis, we equip the participants, or citizens, each year to construct their own state, utilizing the core values that hold true in our everyday lives. We teach the need for competition, the value of public service, and the strength of the individual voice and vote. By reinforcing these basic American ideals, we help to shape the future of our society. This is what the American Legion Boys State of Missouri program is all about.

Citizens of The American Legion Boys State of Missouri are eligible to receive college credit and scholarships for participating and successfully completing Boys State.
