MARYLAND BOYS STATE
Activities include legislative sessions, court proceedings, law enforcement presentations, assemblies, bands, chorus and recreational programs. High school juniors are selected by local American Legion posts to attend the program. In most cases, expenses associated with attending this program are paid by a sponsoring American Legion post, a local business or another community-based organization.
In Maryland, Boys State is conducted annually at McDaniel College in Westminster, MD. It typically begins on Fathers Day and runs through the following Friday. To be eligible for Boys State, a youth must be a male who have successfully completed their junior year in high school and not have entered their senior year of high school. Any boy who has previously attended a Boys State is not eligible.
Applications may be obtained through local high school class counselors.
