At American Legion Buckeye Boys State, participants are exposed to the rights, privileges, duties, and responsibilities of a franchised citizen. The training is objective and practical, with a city, county, and state government operated by the students elected to the various offices. Activities include legislative sessions, court proceedings, law enforcement presentations, assemblies, a band, and recreation. High school juniors are selected by local American Legion posts.
American Legion Buckeye Boys State will be held June 10-17 on the campus of Bowling Green State University.
