Montgomery-Plant-Dudley Post 10





Americanism-Children and Youth Post 10


Each spring Post 10 sponsors three participants in Badger Boys State. Each are chosen by their respective schools. One for each of the Wausau High Schools. This program is designed to teach participants how the United States of American has designed the preeminent form of government and as citizens, we have no more precious possession than the Constitution. Equally important as the future leaders in Wisconsin and beyond. Participants immersed insignificant group activities assisting in development of lifelong leadership skill.

Post 10 awards scholarships to graduating high school seniors in the area schools. The entry form for scholarships are on this website. These seniors must be related to Post 10 members and have a grade average to support the privilege of the scholarship. We also award one scholarship to a member of the Post 10 American Legion Baseball team. We give out the scholarships at each school’s award ceremonies in the spring.




Boys State Scholarship



American Legion Boys State is among the most respected and selective educational programs of government instruction for high school students. It is a participatory program where each participant becomes a part of the operation of his local, county and state government.

Boys State has been a program of The American Legion since 1935 when it organized to counter the Fascist inspired Young Pioneer Camps. The program was the idea of two Illinois Legionnaires, Hayes Kennedy and Harold Card, who organized the first Boys State at the Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield.

The American Legion Auxiliary sponsors a similar program for young ladies called Girls State. At American Legion Boys State, participants are exposed to the rights and privileges, the duties and the responsibilities of a franchised citizen. The training is objective and practical with city, county and state governments operated by the students elected to the various offices. Activities include legislative sessions, court proceedings, law enforcement presentations, assemblies, bands, chorus and recreational programs.

High school juniors are selected by local American Legion Posts to attend the program. In most cases, expenses associated with attending this program are paid by a sponsoring American Legion Post, a local business or another community-based organization.

American Legion Boys State is currently conducted in 49 Departments of The American Legion. Hawaii does not conduct a program. As separate corporations, Boys States vary in content and method of procedure, but each and every Boys State adheres to the basic concept of the program - that of teaching government from the township to the state level.
