Register Online After January 15, 2021
Contact your local American Legion Post for your official selection letter which was emailed to them that will provide detailed information on how to register online. The letter contains the proper information for you to submit under the correct sponsoring post. The website for online registration is very specific and should be typed in to the address bar not a search engine. A confirmation email will be sent approximately 7-10 days after you register online.
Once registered, delegates should download a copy of the Boys State Handbook and Packing List. Delegates should also stay in contact with their local, sponsoring American Legion Post, for information on their District orientation date/location. Important information is distributed at these orientations, to include how to apply for the coveted Samsung Scholarship. Make plans to attend a District Orientation.
Your post is your first point of contact as they are your sponsors.
Guard Course Waiver
Please note the Samsung Scholarship is available from The American Legion National Headquarters not The Department of Iowa. All questions should be directed to National.
