BoysState consists of an interactive simulation that teaches high school seniors-to-be the value of democracy and civic duty. Participants form mock governments and campaign for positions at the city, county and state levels. All delegates demonstrate outstanding leadership qualities in student government, athletics or other activities and were nominated to attend by school counselors and influential people in their lives.
