Pre-Primary Meetings & Campaigning

At Cornhusker Boys State, high school juniors from across Nebraska engage in a week-long immersion in civic education and political engagement. One of the program’s most exciting aspects is the campaign process, where students vie for elected positions, including governor, lieutenant governor, and attorney general. Through spirited campaigning, passionate advocacy, and Election Day anticipation, delegates experience firsthand the democratic process in action.

Beyond the thrill of the campaign, Cornhusker Boys State offers a comprehensive exploration of citizenship and leadership. Delegates participate in workshops, interact with elected officials, and develop a deeper understanding of civic responsibility. This transformative experience equips young leaders with the skills and insights needed to make a meaningful impact in their communities and beyond.
