Boys State Takes Over the Wyoming Capitol
Boys from all over the state participated in the week long Boys State activities, gaining knowledge of their state and its governmental structure.
Delegates from around Wyoming meet to build city, county, and state government then participate in the Legislative, and Court sessions. Between all this activity delegates experience the election process by campaigning for and voting for many positions during the week.
Boys State educators include Governor Mead, U.S. Senator Enzi, US Senator Barasso, Congresswoman Lummis, Wyoming Legislators, Judges, attorneys, Wyoming National Guard, law enforcement officers, and Legion volunteers. Delegates learn from experience the power of teamwork and self-motivation to accomplish the objective.
Members of Boys state took over the Wyoming Capitol Thursday. Delegates occupied the House and Senate Chambers and the various offices and agencies of Wyoming’s government. The delegates elected to the top five elected positions met their counterparts at the State Loan and Investment Board meeting.
