Enrollment Limitation and Deadline Enrollment is limited to 500 boys.
Applications will be considered on a "First Come, First Served" basis, when accompanied with proper fee and form.
Every boy for whom application is made to Boys State must be sponsored by an American Legion Post. A Post may sponsor as many as they desire from any High School. Financial assistance can be accepted from outside sources.
DEADLINE FOR MAKING APPLICATION and PAYMENT IS APRIL 1; AND FOR COMPLETING REGISTRATION, MAY 1.
If a Boys Stater is unable to attend, the sponsor should immediately notify Department Headquarters and designate who the alternate is. There are no additional charges at Boys State, but the Student Union is available for usual items of confectionery and refreshments, so Staters may bring a small amount of spending money with them.
