High school juniors eligible for scholarships

Delegates will be selected by the William Zeb Longest American Legion Post 42 and Auxiliary Unit 42, Floyds Knobs, to attend Boys’ and Girls’ State to be held in June, at Trine University in Angola. Only attendees of Girls’ and Boys’ State are eligible to apply for the Samsung Scholarships which, in the past have provided as many as 10 $20,000 scholarships and 88 $1,000 awards.  The amounts depend on earnings from a $5 million scholarship fund, endowed by Samsung and administered by the American Legion.

Girls and Boys State, since their inception as a Legion and Auxiliary program in 1937 and 1935 respectively, have given nearly 2 million young people the opportunity to learn first-hand how their state and local government works.  Participants are exposed to the rights and privileges, the duties and responsibilities of a U. S. citizen; run for political office and are elected to various city, county and state governments; and participate in legislative sessions, court proceedings, assemblies, bands, chorus and recreational programs.
