Continental Youth Bound for American Legion Buckeye Boys State

American Legion Post 541 has selected Chris Potts, Nick Koenig and Riley Martin to participate in the American Legion Buckeye Boys State, an 8 day intensive education program on Ohio government for high school students, where each participant becomes a part of the operation of a mythical 51st state – local, county and state government.

Buckeye Boys State will be held June 11-18, 2017 on the campus of Miami University, Oxford, OH. While there, the participants are exposed to the rights, privileges, duties and responsibilities of a franchised citizen. The training is objective, practical and non-partisan with city, county and state government operated by students elected to the various offices. Activities include legislative sessions, court proceedings, law enforcement presentations, assemblies, a band, and recreation. High School juniors are selected by local American Legion posts. American Legion Post 541 is located at 109 South 5th St, Continental, OH.
