"The catch-phrase for Boys State is A week to shape a lifetime but that does not even begin to describe the impact Boys State has on you. You walk out of Boys State not only with new knowledge over government, law, and politics, but with friendships and memories to last a lifetime."

Missouri Boys State in Action - 2019 Political Platforms

Citizens discuss their party's paltform.

The citizens of Missouri Boys State are divided into two political parties, the "Federalists" and the "Nationalists." These titles have no real political connotation. Citizens are assigned to political parties randomly. Political parties afford the opportunity for collective thinking and sincere cooperation in analyzing problems that affect citizens as a whole. Political parties develop platforms which define party aims and ideals. In Boys State each party develops their own platform at the ward, city, county, and state level. These platforms often include positions on both real world and Boys State issues that party members feel are in the interest of Boys State citizens.

The Platforms of both parties can be found here!
