What is Badger Boys’ State Like?

by Keltin, Class of 2020

  
I was excited to attend Badger Boys State (BBS) in June, but I didn't really know what to expect. After the first session, I realized what a great experience it could be if I just got involved. Upon arrival, the boys - or citizens as we are called at BBS - were
divided into parties, cities, and counties which made up the new State of Badger. Many things we did throughout the week were related to the party or city or county we belonged to.
 
One of the things I realized right away was that I was going to meet a lot of great people! It’s an amazing opportunity to make new friends, to find out about their hometowns and schools, and to get to know what they think about life.
 
I also learned about voting and running the legislature which added to what I’ve learned in school. Badger Boys State was the perfect setting for me to learn more about our government as well as practice voting in a mock situation which was very informative and fun. I was appointed Chief of Police for my city and also Treasurer for the city. There are many other opportunities that citizens can run for during the session as well.
 
In our free time, we played a lot of sports which helped us learn more about teamwork. 
 
The week at Badger Boys State was a chance to make new friends and learn about our government. I learned a lot and would encourage any guy thinking about applying to do so. BBS is an incredible experience and I’d even say it is an opportunity of a lifetime!
