The American Legion Boys State of Missouri Logo
"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
Annapolis, MO

Welcome To Missouri Boys State

The American Legion Boys Nation logoBoys Nation is a nationwide program of the American Legion which teaches federal government policies and practices to high school juniors in a week-long simulation. Selection to the program is through 48 American Legion Boys' State programs throughout the country. Two delegates represent each state as senators. During their week in the the nation's capital they held mock senate sessions and conducted elections for President and Vice President. In addition to this 'learning by doing' activity, they toured many of Washington's historic sites. [From http://www.legion.org/boysnation/]

Each year, two participants from Missouri Boys State are seleceted to be delegates to Boys Nation, held in Washington D.C. Names are sorted by year of attendance.
