Candidates sought for Buckeye Boys State and Girls State

(Submitted by BG American Legion and Auxiliary)

The Bowling Green American Legion Post 45 and the Bowling Green American Legion Auxiliary Unit 45 will begin interviewing candidates for the 2019 American Legion Buckeye Boys State and the 2019 American Legion Auxiliary Buckeye Girls State. 

The Boys State and Girls State programs are part of a national educational program for high school juniors to learn about and set up a working state government. Interviews will begin in February at the Bowling Green High School. 

Juniors from the Bowling Green School District who are home schooled or attend private schools are also eligible for consideration.  Home schooled and privately schooled students should contact David and Jane Ridenour at 419-352-5054 (or e-mail at for more information.

The Bowling Green American Legion and Auxiliary are also seeking outside sponsors for eligible boys and girls to send to Boys State and Girls State. Sponsorships allow our post to send more local students to these outstanding programs than we could otherwise.  For sponsorship information please contact David and Jane Ridenour.
