High School Juniors interested in attending Oklahoma Boys State must apply with their local American Legion Post. For help locating and contacting your local American Legion Post, email us here or call (405) 578-4627 or use the post locator below.
The methods to select boys to attend Oklahoma Boys State vary from state to state and even from Post to Post, but all share the common goal of providing the most beneficial experience to those who appear to have the most potential for leadership and service. In Oklahoma, each Post uses its own method and qualifications to choose Boys State Delegates and Alternates, but all Delegates and Alternates must be chosen and enrolled by April 15.
Some posts use a paper application to review candidates and conduct interviews. A generic application is available for download here.
