American Legion Boys State is a leadership program for young men who have completed their junior year of high school and are leaders in their schools and communities. American Legion Boys State provides delegates with a working knowledge of how governments function on the city, county and state levels.

By teaching youth to understand and appreciate the basic principles involved in the successful management of a democratic society, the American Legion believes we can keep America strong for future generations.

Acceptance to Alabama Boys State is a privilege granted by invitation only. Delegates from across the state are selected by their school faculty and community leaders based on their demonstration of leadership, hard work, strong morals and motivation.

Boys State is a full and active week held on the campus of the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa and is one of the state’s highest honors.
