Debate and Campaigning

The third day of Cornhusker Boys’ State was full of spirited political debate, campaigning, and voting.  We capped off the day with a trip to the Nebraska National Guard base.  The day began with our two political parties, the nationalists and federalists, debating planks in their newly formed party platform. Next, candidates campaigned for various state and county offices. Later that afternoon, a primary election was held. In the evening, the delegates toured the National Guard Base in Lincoln.

Let the Fun Begin

The 79th annual session of American Legion Cornhusker Boys’ State is underway.  Towns are getting to know one another and starting to have some serious fun!  Today, Sen. Suzanne Geist visited the delegates elected to the Boys State Unicameral Legislature. This afternoon was also the first games for the town’s sports teams.  We finished the evening with an incredibly motivating message from Dr. Jo!
