Nine high school juniors and two seniors from the Flathead Valley have been selected as delegates to attend American Legion Boys State at Carroll College in Helena. Yes, we are sending 11 young men to Boys State this year. The program will be conducted from June 6-11, 2021. The young men were selected and sponsored by Kalispell American Legion Post #137. Sponsorship was made possible by the generous support of members of the business community and Post 137.

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.

Congratulations and Best of Luck at Boys State! Post 137 and the Flathead Valley are proud of this years participants.
