Joseph Q. Johnson Post 96 sends High School Juniors to the American Legion Program Boy’s State every year. This is a week-long camp in Flagstaff in June. At Boys State,
participants learn the rights, privileges and responsibilities of franchised citizens. The training is objective and centers on the structure of city, county and state governments. Operated by students elected to various offices, Boys State activities include
legislative sessions, court proceedings, law-enforcement presentations, assemblies, bands, choruses and recreational programs.

Members of the Post interview students and choose, with great difficulty, the boys to attend. Willow Canyon Guidance Counselors screen applicants with outstanding scholastic
and social standings.
