Sending a young man to Boys State is a two-fold investment. Clearly it is an investment in a young man who is heading into his senior year with plans for college and beyond. BSLA is also an investment in the future of your community, state and nation.

Whereas driver’s education gave them valuable training in road responsibility, BSLA has given tens of thousands of young Kansans hands on civic responsibility. It has strengthen confidence, inspired leadership, built bonds of friendship and erased prejudice—all in a safe, open and welcoming environment. This is an opportunity for you to keep passing the torch to the next generation.
