The Legion organizations believe that educating our you about the basic ideals and principles of our system of government will help to ensure the survival of our republic. Through citizenship training programs, members guide the youth of our nation toward an understanding, comprehension and appreciation of their roles as United States Citizens. These programs are called Girls and Boys State.
The students are chosen from the top one-half of the Junior class, after submitting an application to the American Legion. Selection criteria include academic record, school activities and sometimes financial need. The students selected spend a week at ISU where they simulate the offices and running of government.
The Legion members, feel blessed to have this caliber of young people interested in the quality and structure of our government.
