|Wonderful Wyoming Boys' State will be held on June 1 - 7,
2013 at the Fairgrounds in Douglas Wyoming. Boys from all over the state
participated in the week long activities, gaining knowledge of their state
and its governmental structure.
Delegates from around Wyoming meet to build city, county, and state government then participate in the Legislative, and Court sessions. Between all this activity delegates experience the election process by campaigning for and voting for many positions during the week.
Boys State educators include Governor Mead, U.S. Senator Enzi, US Senator Barasso, Congresswoman Lummis, Wyoming Legislators, Judges, attorneys, Wyoming National Guard, law enforcement officers, and Legion volunteers. Delegates learn from experience the power of teamwork and self-motivation to accomplish the objective. In the process of working together, the delegates develop life-long friendships.
The week is topped off with a trip to the State Capitol in Cheyenne, where the Delegates occupy the House and Senate Chambers and the various offices and agencies of Wyoming's government. The delegates get to meet the governor and many of his staff members in this full day of activities.
