American Legion Boys State is a practical application of the duties, responsibilities and privileges of American citizenship. Its purpose is to awaken within the youth of our nation a sincere conviction that a well-informed, intelligent, participating citizenry is most vitally needed to protect and preserve our American traditions.
Boys State grows out of the American Legion’s faith in our young people, and its firm belief that the future leaders of our country should be given the tools necessary to keep it: a deep appreciation of active citizenship, an understanding of democracy, a familiarity with our American form of government, and the discernment to select – and to be – productive leaders.
All students will be eligible to apply for American Legion New Hampshire Boys State scholarships, totaling over $7,000.
