Registration for Arkansas Boys State 2021
Our local high schools are a key part of Arkansas Boys State and the transforming of lives for our young men. We ask that these schools send us their best and brightest: leaders on the field and in the classroom, mature, beaming with potential, and ready to shape the future of our state.
Tens of thousands of delegates have been a part of this life-changing program since 1940. We’re excited for you to join us! Here’s what you can expect: sharpening your leadership skills, experiencing government and civic engagement firsthand, and making life-long memories and friends.
We are thankful to have this opportunity, through one of the American Legion’s finest programs, to provide a valuable leadership experience to Arkansas’ best and brightest young men. Our local American Legion Posts provide so much support to what we do: staffing, sponsorship, support, and more!

We’re celebrating the 80th session of our life-changing program on May 30 – June 4, 2021,

What is Arkansas Boys State?
Arkansas Boys State is an immersive program in civics education designed for high school juniors. Since 1940, the week-long camp has transformed the lives of young men throughout our state and beyond. These young men have gone on to become incredible leaders, including President Bill Clinton, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, and Senator Tom Cotton — just to name a few.
