Educator Introduction

Thank you for your interest in nominating a young man to attend the 2017 session, June 11 - 17, 2017 at Saint John's University in Collegeville.

To apply for the 2017 Session of Minnesota Boys State a delegate must be a male, currently in their Junior year of high school (with at least one semester remaining next fall), and be involved in extra-curricular activities in their school and community. By proceeding, the assumption is that your nominee meet those requirements. To nominate a student directly, email their name, home phone number, high school name, your name (and position), and their qualifications to recruiting@mnboysstate.org.

The best way to apply for Boys State is through the school counselor that may or may not have an already established relationship with their local American Legion Post. Every Boys Stater must ultimately receive the sponsorship of a Legion Post, whether it is their local Post, or elsewhere. If there is no existing relationship, the student should fill out an interest form online.
