Ron Wood Boys' State Chairman
Welcome to The American Legion Boys' State Wyoming Web Site. On behalf of the almost three million members of The American Legion, I urge you to consider attending this outstanding program. If you decide this is a program that you are interested in attending please contact your Guidance Counselor or local American Legion post, indicating that you are interested in attending.
American Legion Boys' State is an experience that you will remember for a lifetime. It has been the springboard for many careers in public service. For some, it has been an opportunity to develop friendships, camaraderie and to share experiences in a common fraternity that extends long after the on-site program ends.
This program is not a sports camp or summer camp, however it is an intense week of studying, and forming city and state government. You will experience government in a practical sense by actually participating in it. Boys State is a leadership action program which teaches government, its structure, and proves that government is just what you make it.
As you browse the Web Site you will find a full schedule of events for this week of instruction. The Wyoming Boys State Program is recognized as one of the "top" programs in our nation. Read through all of the information and decide if you want to attend. Please contact me or one of the local American Legion Posts, they have complete information on the Program.
