80th Session of Missouri Boys State: Sine Die!



The 80th Session of Missouri Boys State has come to a close. Parents were able to attend Democracy in Action, an encompassing presentation of the week. Citizens were able to congregate one last time, reflecting on the experience they've had.

You can see what the 80th Session of Missouri Boys State looked like here!

We would like to extend our appreciation to each of our 2019 Sponsors, our partners at high schools across the State of Missouri, and our all volunteer staff!

American Legion Boys
State Of Missouri

 


The American Legion Boys State of Missouri is an eight-day hands on experience in the operation and fundamentals of government. Missouri Boys State draws together the best and brightest high school juniors to help lead them down the path of individual success and leadership through "doing," not just learning.

One idea paramount above any other at Missouri Boys State: That the individual is the one with the power to change the world. Whether athlete or politician, journalist or scientist, each and every one of us has the power to make a difference in the world.

Using our democratic system as a basis, we equip the participants, or citizens, each year to construct their own state, utilizing the core values that hold true in our everyday lives. We teach the need for competition, the value of public service, the strength of the individual voice and vote. By reinforcing these basic American ideals, we help to shape the future of our society. This is what the American Legion Boys State of Missouri program is all about. Citizens of The American Legion Boys State of Missouri are eligible to receive college credit and scholarships for participating and successfully completing Boys State.
