"The catch-phrase for Boys State is A week to shape a lifetime but that does not even begin to describe the impact Boys State has on you. You walk out of Boys State not only with new knowledge over government, law, and politics, but with friendships and memories to last a lifetime."

-- Brett Dinkins '07

Culmination of the Week

It's the final day of Boys State. Today, the citizens finish their model city iniatives and take their final exams in their schools of instruciton. Citizens who pass their exam will recieve college credit for participation in Missouri Boys State. After exams, citizens have their last chance to make their city's parks, roads, and final preparations for Model City and Model County judging during governmental activities.

Community Service Project

The citizens had the opportunity to serve the Warrensburg community in the afternoon. While visiting the local veterans' home, the citizens applied what they had learned throughout the week. Before the Governor's Cup, the Missouri State Highway Patrol held a demonstration for the citizens.

Final Assembly

Missouri Boys State welcomed Govenor Eric Greitens as the final keynote speaker of the week. Speaking about his experiences as a Navy SEAL and as Governor, he encouraged the citizens to realize their potential and engage themselves in their community. Governor Greitens then took questions from the audience, touching on topics relating to the state budget cuts and his service.

After watching the final newscast, the citizens headed to their cities. After being challenged to serve their communities, the citizens held their final city meetings. These final meetings are often considered a capstone to what many have called "a week to shape a lifetime."

MBS Record
