How can I prepare a student to attend Boys State?

Most of your job is to motivate them to prepare themselves. We encourage them to utilize this website as well as the information that we send to them to get a grasp on the nature of the program and what they need to do. We also provide school visits that will explain the program. These visits are very important as they allow the prospective students to ask former citizens questions, so it is important that you arrange for the interested students to be able to participate in the visit. If you do not have a visit scheduled, please contact our headquarters office.
