American Legion Boys/Girls State

Selection Process: Girls are nominated by all Faculty and Staff at each school in January. Students are encouraged to let their teachers and counselors know that they are interested in being nominated. Also nominating students are the members of the American Legion and American Legion Auxiliary. From these pools of students an interview will take place.   The interview is made up of Auxiliary, Legion and community members. Interviews will be held locally in March ( exact dates and locations are TBA). There are no “FaceTime” interviews. There is no make up date for interviews.  Each student is given 5 minutes to answer a set of questions asked by the committee. They will be given a quick score immediately after each interview ( 1-5)  that is not shared with anyone. At the end of the interview process, the scores are compiled and the top scoring students from each school are selected. Students who participate in the American Legion Oratorical Contest, Jr. members of ALA or AL and students with immediate family in the military will be given special consideration.   Students will be notified the following week of who is selected to attend Girls and Boys State. Each school has a set amount of students who can attend plus we offer positions to homeschool and private school students as well. Each school will also be offered alternates. Alternates will take the place of delegates who can not attend or in rare cases may even be granted entrance as delegates. Because of this reason Alternates are encouraged to keep their calendars open during the time of Girls and Boys State....
