"MBS was truly a life-changing experience. The leadership experience in that one short week not only inspired me to be a leader in my school the next year, but also inspired me to be a leader in the United States Army."

County Government Finalized

The election polls opened early this morning at 6:30 AM, allowing citizens to vote for their candidates in the county elections.

Throughout the morning, state party caucuses allowed the Federalist and Nationalist party primary candidates campaign for their party's ticket. Afterwards, the candidates campaigned across Boy's State to win votes for tomorrow's primary. The political parties finalized their platforms for the upcoming state election during their caucuses.

After the polls closed, the newly elected county leaders (see the results on the Elections page) began appointing officials and setting up plans for their county as a whole.

As the citizens progressed through their schools of instruction, they began to impact Boys State through their trials, news reports, and laws.

Evening Assembly with Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt

Tonight, the program welcomed the Attorney General of Missouri: Eric Schmitt at the evening assembly. Schmitt spoke about his experiences as a Missouri State Senator, allowing the citizens to see into the life of the Missouri born politician. Treasurer Schmitt enlightened the citizens with details about the modern economy: Relative volitility, constant acceleration of innovation, and the new unprecedented age of career switching. However, despite such economic uncertainty, Schmitt conveyed the massive opportunities available for Missouri Boys State citizens to become men of service; through non-profits such as Habitat for Humanity, military service, or even public office. He then built up Missouri spirit by naming off people and ideas that hailed from Missouri.

After his speech, Mr. Schmitt had a lengthy Question and Answer period where MBS citizens were able to ask him questions.

Supreme Court Sworn In

During the Evening Assembly, Circuit Court Judge Alan Blankenship swore in the Missouri Boys State Supreme Court. After the assembly, the citizens were dismissed to further governmental activities, and the students of the Law school tackled the Missouri Boys State Bar Exam. Tomorrow, they look forward to selecting their state candidates and beginning the race for state office.
