Published DateLACONIA — The deadline is approaching for high school juniors to apply for the Boys State and Girls State programs sponsored by the American Legion and the local Wilkins-Smith Post 1.
Boys State and Girls State are separate five-day programs, where interested juniors (heading to their senior year) will become familiarized with local, county, and state government operations.
Applications, available at all local high school guidance offices, must be received at Concord by May 26. Applications should also be available on line at: www.nhboysstate.org for the Boys State application. Beginning this year there is a $25 application fee to assure us that the student is committed.
