2024 New Hampshire Boys State

The 2024 Session of New Hampshire Boys State will take place from Sunday, June 23 – Friday, June 28, 2024 at Saint Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire. A student is eligible to apply to Boys State if he:

  • Attends a New Hampshire high school, or is a resident of the State of New Hampshire; 

  • Maintains a scholastic average of 80 or better;

  • Is of good character and in good health; and

  • Demonstrates qualities of leadership, character, and good citizenship.

There is no limit on the number of qualified candidates who may attend from a particular high school.  Home-school students may attend, provided that they meet the eligibility requirements. 


The only costs that an individual student must bear for American Legion New Hampshire Boys State are his non-refundable $25.00 application fee, transportation to and from Saint Anselm College, and any desired incidentals during the week. Community sponsors and American Legion posts pay the remaining $375.00 tuition, which covers room, board, snacks, materials, the costs of instruction, and all in-program transportation from the point of registration to graduation.

The American Legion Auxiliary runs the Girls State program for young women. Additional information about that program is available HERE.
