Applicants

Eligibility…

The only hard point of eligibility we have is that potential participants to the Hoosier Boys State program must complete their junior year of high school, and start their senior year after the summer break. That being said, we are looking for gifted young men that have the potential to positively impact their communities. These gentlemen are selected based on their leadership potential by their respective school administrators and communities in cooperation with local American Legion representatives. This is purposely left vague because leadership potential comes in many forms and cannot necessarily be defined by a single point, such as GPA.

Expectations…

Hoosier Boys State is a program that encourages learning through participation. As a result, we are looking for active, well-behaved young men who are leadership-capable, open-minded and driven to make a difference in their communities. These individuals will get the most out of the program by being involved and interacting with their peers throughout the week.

Commitment…

Once a high school student has been selected, the district chairman will work with a sponsor to pledge 300 dollars for them attend. Please note that the money is committed whether the delegate attends or not. As a result, it is important that expected attendees show up to be a part of the program. So please plan accordingly in conjunction with commitments at other summer camps, ACT/SAT or school functions. To get the full experience you have to be here from beginning to end.

If something unexpected has happened where you cannot attend, or must leave early in the week, please notify your district chairman or us ASAP so an alternate can fill your spot.
