Boys State, Boys Nation cancelled due to pandemic

Boys Nation, planned for July 17-25 in Washington, D.C., has been cancelled. Assessment on awarding the Samsung American Legion Scholarships is underway.

Minnesota Boys State, scheduled for June 14-20 at St. John’s University in Collegeville, has been cancelled.

Both decisions were made in light of the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions on gatherings. Though the educational events happen in the summer, signing up and planning happens this spring, and it would be difficult to determine whether to accept applications without knowing whether the restrictions would be lifted by summer.
