At American Legion Buckeye Boys State, participants are exposed to the rights, privileges, duties and responsibilities of a franchised citizen. The training is objective, practical and non-partisan with city, county and state government operated by students elected to the various offices. Activities include legislative sessions, court proceedings, law enforcement presentations, assemblies, a band and recreations. High school juniors are selected by local American Legion posts.
American Legion Buckeye Boys State will be held on June 12-19, 2016 on the campus of Bowling Green State University.
