BOYS STATE

American Legion Post 50, Peachtree City - host (pays for) up to 20 boys to attend Georgia's Boys State.  If you are a Junior in High School and will be a Senior Next year you're the age for this program.  If you are interested in Government, Politics, and/or the constitution this is the program for you.

Georgia Boys State is a comprehensive one-week camp on state and local government.  It is a "Leadership Action Program" where qualified male high school rising seniors take part in a practical government course.  It is designed to develop a working knowledge of the structure of government and to impress upon the citizen the fact that our government is just what we make it.  Along the way, delegates have the opportunity to learn the political process by organizing a mythical state.  Each level of government is run by those delegates who are elected to serve by their peers.  Instruction is presented on the law and court systems, parliamentary procedure, and Georgia's political history.

Also, there is time for fun sports, chorus, and other activities.
