American Legion Cornhusker Boys’ State is set up as a functional “51st state” and each boy learns how government subdivisions operate by actually doing the job. Participants will campaign for offices, hold elections, take part in band and chorus, complete in athletics, and be involved in other varied activities as part of the citizenship training program.


Special lectures and addresses will be delivered by experienced public officials and professional leaders throughout Nebraska. Invitations have been sent to the Governor and Secretary of State offices for special appearances at this year’s program.  National acclaimed motivational speakers are also scheduled to address the entire group.


Since its inception in 1919, The American Legion has been a key advocate for veterans’ benefits, patriotic American Values, instilling values in young people through numerous programs, and a strong nation defense with focus on quality-of-life issues for those serving in today’s armed forces.
