Stay connected with Boys Nation delegates

The 66th session of The American Legion Boys Nation program will take place in Washington, D.C., July 20-28. The 98 delegates, who have been selected by their respective departments’ Boys State programs, will reside at Marymount University in Arlington, Va., for the prestigious event.

Family and friends of the delegates, as well as Boys State/Nation alumni, can stay connected with the young men like never before. Follow the young men on a daily basis by visiting www.legion.org/boysnation to read articles, view photos and watch videos highlighting the events in which the young men participate in. Additionally, updates will be posted to the Legion’s Youth Programs Alumni Association Facebook page. See a detailed Boys Nation agenda, which is subject to change, here.
