THE AMERICAN LEGION ALASKA BOYS STATE
TO: ALL HIGH SCHOOL JUNIORS:
The 52nd Annual American Legion Alaska Boys State Program will be held starting at 5:30 p.m. on Sunday June 10, 2018 through Saturday June 16, 2018. This year’s program will be held at Wilderness Lodge at St Therese’s Camp near Wasilla. The Tuition remains $300 per student which is paid by the sponsoring American Legion Post/Squad/Unit. The Alaska Boys State Program is open to High School Juniors (those who will be seniors during the 2018-2019 school year.) and are at least 16 years of age and not over 18 years of age.
American Legion Boys State is an objective citizenship training program which includes individual responsibility to the community, state and nation. It is our goal that each young man attending American Legion Boys State sessions will return to his community a better citizen. This experience will have stimulated in him a desire to become an active citizen and leader to make contributions which will help to make his community a better place. Boys State is not a recreational camp but a leadership training camp. The American Legion Boys State Program is for qualified male High School Juniors only.
Our American Legion plays a very important role in the development of the future leaders of this state and nation. Our history is proven by the following list of prominent Boys State graduates. We take great pride in offering this program to the young men of Alaska.
