75th Anniversary Session Kicks Off

Beginning around noon on Sunday, May 31, 2015, buses, minivans, and cars of all kinds arrived at Harper Residence Hall on the campus of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, delivering just under 400 delegates from all corners of the state for the 2015 session of Cornhusker Boys’ State.

2015 marks a special milestone for the program: 75 years of maintaining the standard of excellence set by Nebraska’s Premiere Leadership Program. With a full lineup of speakers, hands-on events, and political immersion ahead, the 2015 Session promises to once again deliver what many delegates describe as “an experience of a lifetime.”
