Boys State is equally divided into two fictitious political parties. Each party meets to construct a platform from scratch, and candidates will campaign for state and county offices. This process is driven entirely by the students who elect their party leadership and debate the “planks” of their platforms.
The Results Are In
Sunday night, Cornhusker Boys’ State towns held elections to form their city government. Today the new governments attended “how-to” workshops followed by a mock local government simulation.
Vikram S Menon from Omaha’s Millard North High School was elected as the 80th Governor of American Legion Cornhusker Boys’ State. Vikram is a citizen of the Boys’ State town of Gettysburg.
Menon opposed Omaha Central’s Joshua King in the general election. King proudly represented the Boys’ State town of Bataan.
Congratulations to both of these fine young men!
