Eastern Illinois University in Charleston will host Boys State June 9-15.
Boys State is a seven-day, hands-on experience in the operation and fundamentals of government.
Through doing, not just learning, participants work together and form a state that is unlike any other. Activities include legislative sessions, court proceedings, law enforcement presentations, assemblies and seminars.
