Delegate Packet

Congratulations on becoming a part of the American Legion Boys State of Kansas family! This page is designed to provide our delegates, and their parents/guardians, more information as they prepare to attend our program in August.

Attending our program might seem like a “What have I gotten myself into?” moment right now, especially after a year unlike any that we have experienced before.  However, that sense of anxiety will dissipate once you are in Manhattan and immersed in the development of your Boys State experience.
