A Week To Shape A Lifetime Starts…NOW!

A week to shape a lifetime starts now.   The 78th annual session of Cornhusker Boys’ State began on Sunday when 379 delegates from across the state arrived in Lincoln.  Boys’ State is a citizenship and leadership experience for high school juniors.  The delegates will form and operate local and state governments.  In addition to the government simulation experience, “staters” will discuss current issues in society, participate in athletic and fine arts activities, and make new friends.  At the end of the week, one delegate will be elected Governor of Cornhusker Boys State and two delegates will be selected to be senators at Boys Nation in Washington DC.

Cornhusker Boys’ State is sponsored by the Nebraska Department of the American Legion.

Singing Staters

 

The 2018 Cornhusker Boys and Girls State choir met for the first time today. Under the direction of Dr. Peter Eklund, the chorus will perform at the Wednesday evening session. Activity time is a highlight of the week.  In addition to chorus, Boys State offers band, journalism, football, softball, sand volleyball, basketball, and track.

Governor Knust Welcomes Delegates to 2018 Session

Hello all! My name is Riley Knust and, as the serving Governor, it is my pleasure and privilege to welcome you to Cornhusker Boys State 2018. Going into Boys State last year, I didn’t really know what to expect. All I knew is that I’d play some sports, maybe run for an office, and meet some cool guys. I’m sure many of you are in the same spot. During this week, there will be a multitude of opportunities to better yourself while always having fun. The key to having a successful and memorable week here at Boys State is to simply get involved. Whether that be running for a town position, interviewing for the judicial branch, crafting and debating bills in the legislature, or maybe even running for Governor; there is a chance for you to experience something new, leave your mark, and come home with unique stories. None of that is what normal high school seniors do, but I urge you to get involved, you won’t regret it. This week you will learn how to be a good citizen, but I believe the greatest thing to take away is the connections and friendships you will make. I wish you all the best of luck and I look forward to seeing all your accomplishments!
