The cost to attend Mississippi American Legion Boys State is $275. This payment covers the cost of meals, housing, and programming for the week. Payment will not be due until May 20th, 2024, and should not be sent until you have received your acceptance email.
Cost should never prevent a student from attending our program. There are many resources available in each community that can help you get to Boys State. Your first option is to contact a nearby American Legion Post and ask if they have any scholarships available for you. Please review the "Cost" page on our website for a link to a listing of Mississippi's American Legion Posts.
Once again, cost should never prevent a student from attending our program. Should you need more assistance, please contact us at email@example.com.
