Day to Day Activities - Sunday, June 13th

Starting in the City

The second day of Missouri Boys State began early Sunday morning, as citizens reported to the polls as early as 6:30 a.m. for the General Assembly Election. By Sunday evening, cities would enjoy a fully operational municipal government and representation in the state House of Representatives and Senate. Beginning in ward caucuses, city party officials nominated a slate of candidates for roles like mayor, city councilman, police officer and even health commissioner. As election citizens and staff worked together to tabulate results, citizens hustled to their spiritual ceremony of choice.

Schools of Instruction


Soon after spiritual ceremonies concluded, citizens faced perhaps the biggest decision of their entire week: choosing a School of Instruction. Schools of Instruction include the Schools of Journalism, Law, Legislation, Commerce, Law Enforcement, Public Administration and Campaigning. This decision forms a citizen's career trajectory for the rest of the week, as each school provides specialized tools required for each Boys State occupation. Newly elected Senators attended the Legislative School while Highway Patrolmen attended the Law Enforcement School. The selection of a School of Instruction plays a major part in the Boys State experience.

Mayors Sworn In by Mayor of St. Louis!

Boys State was honored to host mayor of St. Louis Tishaura Jones as a keynote speaker Sunday evening. Using the metaphor of the boiling point of water, Jones asked citizens to reach their own 212th degree and generate their own "steam" required for success in their communities and at Boys State this week. Following her speech, she swore in the newly elected mayors of Boys State's 18 cities, officially presenting each city with their leader for the rest of the week.
