Badger Boys State is a week-long youth program held each June to teach Wisconsin high-school students leadership and the workings of government. Forty-nine states<ref>http://legion.org/boysnation</ref> (all except for Hawai'i) have a similar yet distinctive program for boys<ref>http://www.boysandgirlsstate.org/boys.html</ref> and a separate program for girls.<ref>http://www.boysandgirlsstate.org/girls.html</ref> The program hosts approximately 850 students (called citizens while attending the program) and over 100 volunteer staff members for 8 days on the Ripon College campus. During the week, a mock government is created as citizens elect leaders in 27 cities, 8 counties, and a "51st" state that encompasses the entire program.

Badger Boys State has helped in the growth and training of a number of notable members of society, including Wisconsin governors Scott Walker, Scott McCallum and Martin Schreiber.<ref>http://www.badgerboysstate.com/past_graduates.htm</ref> The staff and the American Legion seek to provide an educational experience to those who attend the program. Many citizens find the experience memorable and impactful<ref>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hsAGZerlKZ0</ref>
