American Legion Boys State is among the most respected educational programs of government instruction for high school students. It is a participatory program where each participant becomes a part of the operation of his local, county and state government.
High school juniors are selected by the local American Legion Post, S.A.L. Squadron and local sponsors to attend the program. In most cases, expenses associated with attending this program are paid by a sponsoring American Legion Post and S.A.L. Squadron, along with local religious and civic organizations as well as individuals.
The Jasper American Legion Post 147 and S.A.L. Squadron currently sponsors 1 young man each from
Dear American Legion Boys State Citizen,
Congratulations and welcome to The American Legion Boys State family! I am confident that you will not be disappointed with your decision to participate in this outstanding citizenship education experience. It will likely influence your life decisions in ways that you cannot fully appreciate until years later.
American Legion Boys State is among the most respected and selective educational programs of government instruction for high school students in the nation. As one of more than 20,000 young men who participate nationwide in this activity, you will experience government in a practical sense by actually participating in it. American Legion Boys State is a leadership action program; one that teaches government and its structure. It proves that government is just what you make it. You will find it to be challenging and sometimes tiring, but I’m certain you will always find it to be enjoyable and educational!
Our form of government requires citizen involvement if it is to continue. The American Legion Boys State program strives to meet that objective. If this government “….of the people, by the people, and for the people” is to continue, the burden of the task rests squarely on your shoulders and those of your generation.
