S. Al Wilcox American Legion Post 234 in Mountlake Terrace is sponsoring two local students for the 75th annual Evergreen Boys State, to be held 21-27 June 2015 at the Warm Beach Conference Center in Stanwood, WA.
As required, Yoshi Choi and Veng Hong have just completed their Junior academic year at Kamiak High School in Mukilteo.
They have also demonstrated outstanding qualities of leadership, character, loyalty and service to their school.
During their week at Boys State they will simulate and emulate Washington State government through a fun and engaging summer program where they will have an opportunity to construct local, county and state governments.
Activities will include running for office, court proceedings, creating and enforcing laws, honing public speaking skills, experiencing how government works, get inspired by guest speakers, have fun, and make new friends for life.
The Boys State program was started by the American Legion in 1935 in the State of Illinois. It is now duplicated in every state.
