Post 111 sent 10 boys to Boys State in 2018

Thanks to the support from our community, Post 111 sent 10 young men to Boys State in 2018. The list of attendees and community sponsors for our 2017 program is posted here.

Our goal this year (2018) was to send seven (10) young men to Palmetto Boys State and once again we reached our goal. (See our list of this year's attendees here). As stated previously, it costs $300.00 to send one boy to Boys State. We weren't able to do this all by ourselves and we say a special thank you to those businesses who helped us reach our goal. Click on this link to view our 2017 Palmetto Boys State Sponsors. To sponsor a youth, simply send an e-mail to our Boys State Director by clicking here and then send a check for whatever amount you can to the address below. As we are a 501 c(19) non-profit organization, all donations are tax deductible and will be used to sponsor a young man for our 2018 Palmetto Boys State program:

Teens gather for contestThe American Legion Post 111 is a sponsor for the Dare Oratorical Contest. This is a public speaking contest for students in the 9th through 12th grades. It presents participants with an academic speaking challenge that teaches important leadership qualities, the history of our nation's laws, the ability to think and speak clearly, and an understanding of the duties, responsibilities, rights and privileges of American citizenship.

The contest starts locally and, through a series of contests, works up to the National level. Winners of the higher levels can win significant scholarships that can be used for participation in any college of their choice.

Post 111 will be offering a $500 scholarship for the winner of our local competition in January, 2019.

The photo above shows teens from all over the United States gathering in Indianapolis for the National Oratorical Contest.

As stated previously, the contest starts at the local level and works up to the National level. Winners of the higher levels can win significant scholarships that can be used for participation in any college of their choice. In fact, the winner at the National level will receive over $25,000 in scholarships. The winner at the State level will receive about $5,000 in scholarships.

Be sure to check out the 2016 winner at the National level and watch the video. It will give you pointers on how best to prepare and present your speech. Preparation and presentation encompasses many facets so be sure to consult with your high school coaches and others who are helping you to prepare.

Unfortunately we didn't have youth interested in this program this past year. However, as it's now 2018, we hope that we might have some youth interested in this exciting program this year. The total cost for each Cadet is $200.00. See our Law Cadet Academy page for information about this great event.
