The American Legion of Iowa Boys State Post Chairman Reservations for 2021
The American Legion of Iowa Boys State Board of Directors met on Tuesday, March 24, 2020 to discuss the direct impact COVID-19 has on the upcoming session. After careful consideration of the information available and the uncertain future as to the longevity of this pandemic, The American Legion of Iowa Boys State Board of Directors decided to cancel the 2020 Boys State Session and its correlative activities such as District Orientations. The decision to cancel was difficult, but the safety of all participants involved from delegates to counselors was of utmost priority.

. This includes immediate actions that will be taken place for posts and delegates.
The Department of Iowa under the direction of the Board of Directors will be issuing refunds for each post in accordance with the deposits made.

If your post does not receive its refund by the end of April, please contact Department Headquarters at 1-800-365-8387.
A formal letter will be sent in the days to come for those who have formally registered.
