The American Legion is the hosting organization for Oregon Boys State. Through the American Legion, boys are recruited to attend from across Oregon. The American Legion provides scholarships and financial assistance to all citizens in order to attend.
The Legion also provides educational support and leadership during the week of Boys State, conducting numerous ceremonies and providing important civics lessons to citizens in attendance. They act as the driving force behind Boys State.
Through the support and dedication of Legion leadership, Oregon Boys State thrives and continues to grow each year.
The American Legion is composed of veterans of America's armed forces. They have demonstrated their dedication and devotion to the cause of liberty and justice with their own sweat and blood.
The American Legion is supported in their efforts by The American Legion Auxiliary and The Sons of the American Legion.
The counselors and staff of Oregon Boys State wish to extend our thanks to the great men and women of the American Legion, who have served their country with such distinction and honor, and who continue their tradition of service and dedication by devoting their time and effort to support Oregon Boys State.
