The Mississippi American Legion Boys State program is a once in a lifetime opportunity because of this, cost should never prevent a student from attending our program. If program cost is a problem, there are a couple of options available in each community that can help you get to Boys State.
The first option for sponsorship is through your local American Legion Post. Often times, posts will help delegates get to the Boys State by paying the fee in total. However, Legion posts will only be able to sponsor a certain number of delegates. You can find a list of Legion Posts Here.
If you are unable to secure a local American Legion Post sponsorship, we encourage you to reach out to the various business, churches, and civic groups within your community. Local groups might be able to provide a partial or full sponsorship. The Boys State reputation is strong across Mississippi and our Delegates have found much success in securing generous sponsorships within their local community.
If funding is still unavailable after exhausting these options, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
