The American Legion Boy’s State and American Legion Auxiliary Laurel Girl’s State program is being held at Eastern Connecticut State University in Willimantic this month.

These programs provide an opportunity for students to learn about the democratic process by forming their own party, establishing a party platform and electing city, town, and state officials. 
This is a great experience for students interested in government.  

This is a press release from the American Legion.
