For Immediate Release

Seven high school juniors from the Flathead Valley have been selected as delegates to attend American Legion Boys State at Carroll College in Helena. The program will be conducted from June 8 – 13, 2014. The young men were selected and sponsored by Kalispell American Legion Post #137. Sponsorship was made possible by the generous support of 17 members of the business community.

Participation in American Legion Boys State exposes the boys to the rights, privileges, duties and responsibilities of a franchised citizen.  The training is objective and practical where students are elected to various offices, and function in those offices.  Activities include legislative sessions, court proceedings, law enforcement presentations, assemblies, bands and chorus as well as recreational programs. The program is currently held annually in early June. Delegates can also be elected to go to American Legion Boys Nation in Washington D.C.
