One week of your summer can…

  • Distinguish you in the competition for college admissions and scholarships
  • Expand your leadership and problem-solving skills that will help you throughout life
  • Give you a huge head start in your senior government class
  • Introduce you to some of the smartest, most motivated high school juniors in Kansas
  • Establish lifelong friendships

…if you attend the American Legion Boys State of Kansas.

     We are looking forward to our 78th session and our 24th year on the beautiful Kansas State University campus in Manhattan, Kansas.

     The 2015 session dates are May 31 - June 6, 2015.
