We are proud to provide funding again to sponsor the American Legion Texas Boys State and American Legion Auxiliary Texas Bluebonnet Girls State. These organizations send high school students to programs in Texas where they learn about the privileges of American citizenship and how state governments are organized and run by their citizens. Stateswomen and men will spend time at the Texas State Capitol, seeing both the rich history and beautiful facilities of our government. Learning leadership by participating in the political process supplements what students learn in the classroom. This is a practical opportunity for these young women and men to learn leadership skills through role play and civic exercises. The leadership skills they learn here before heading to college will last a lifetime. 
Thank you for providing these "Learn by Doing" leadership opportunities to these young Texans.
