Scholars to Boys State must be high school juniors with outstanding qualifications as set forth by the high school faculty, leading citizens in the community and the sponsoring American Legion Post.

Legion Boys State is a practical learning experience in local and state government, provided by selected competent individuals from governmental areas to assist the boys in organizing and operating their own city, county and state governments.

Hed and the other participants will be encouraged toward greater knowledge, understanding and appreciation of our democratic ideals.

Boys State was first held at the University of Minnesota in 1949 with 169 boys attending. This yearly event has grown to 360 attendees in 2015 and will be held June 12-18 at Southwest Minnesota State University in Marshall.
