Commander's Message

Commander's Project
American Legion Boys State, Maryland

American Legion Boys State is among the most respected and selective educational programs of government instruction for U.S. high school students. A participatory program in which students become part of the operation of local, county and state government, Boys State was founded in 1935 to counter the socialism-inspired Young Pioneer Camps. The program was the idea of two Illinois Legionnaires, Hayes Kennedy and Harold Card, who organized the first Boys State at the Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield.
At Boys State, participants learn the rights, privileges and responsibilities of franchised citizens. The training is objective and centers on the structure of city, county and state governments. Operated by students elected to various offices, Boys State activities include legislative sessions, court proceedings, law-enforcement presentations, assemblies, bands, choruses and recreational programs.
The goal this year is to raise funds for Boys State for the new Annual George Grossnickle Scholarship. Our goal to raise the highest level of monetary donations to carry out his legacy for many years to come. Please help us honor our Past Commission Chairman George Grossnickle.
