W ne ay, Dec 5, 2001 Youth News l I By TmTi Daoust Port E tor Each year, American Le- gion Post 329 chooses stu- dents from local high schools to attend Boys State and Girls State and, Monday, Nov. 26, the Legionnaires hosted a special dinner in honor of those who attended the camps this past summer. Presiding over the dinner were: Ron Benbow, post com- mander; George Oakley, dis- trict chairman for Boys State; and Henry Sanchez, district commander. Both Boys and Girls State are citizenship development programs that instruct youths about the intricacies of our system of governmen- tal functions. Their purpose is to teach young leaders of tomorrow more about their American heritage. In both programs, students become affiliated with a po- litical party, vote in political elections, take part in party rallies and campaign for the passage of legislation. Students are urged to run for office in their assigned cities, counties and the state. There were about 950 boys attending Boys State this year, with each city consist- ing of between 35 to 50 boys.
