OFFICIAL STATEMENT REGARDING COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
Even as the United States has begun vaccinating against COVID-19, this virus continues to play a critical role in our everyday lives. The Executive Committee of The American Legion Missouri Boys State has continued to re-evaluate the status of our 2021 program. While we are planning to provide Missouri’s young leaders with a once-in-a-lifetime experience in this coming June, we are first and foremost committed to ensuring the safety of all our staff and participants in consultation with our host university’s administrators and staff to ensure CDC, state, and county guidelines are followed.
Class of 2021 (Seniors)
Because of COVID-19, our capacity may be limited. It is critical that we know whether you will attend in June. If you plan to attend, we will hold your spot. If you are not able to commit to attending, we want to be sure to offer another deserving young man this opportunity. We sent a communication to you and your parents via email on March 1st with a response required by March 10th.
Class of 2022 (Juniors)
We will announce the week of April 5, 2021 final decisions on who has been accepted to attend. We know you’re anxious to finalize your plans for the summer, so we’ll do all possible to deliver the news on your Missouri Boys State participation as soon as we can.
We appreciate the support we’ve received from schools, parents, sponsors and students during this difficult time. We are committed to a safe and productive environment for this outstanding educational experience. Here’s hoping that the coming months get us back on track in fighting COVID-19 and that we are all together in Warrensburg in June.
We hope you and your family are happy and healthy.
The Staff of The American Legion Boys State of Missouri
