130 participate in American Legion Boys State on NDSCS Campus

Posted on 6/13/2013

Boys State 2013
Ray Salata of Grand Forks has been elected Governor of North Dakota Boys State, a gathering of 130 participants this week on the North Dakota State College of Science (NDSCS) campus in Wahpeton. Salata is a student at Grand Forks Red River High School. Boys State runs from June 9-14.

Sponsored by the American Legion, North Dakota Boys State brings together outstanding young men between their junior and senior years in high school. Selected from schools across North Dakota, these delegates come to the NDSCS campus for a week of activities focusing on government and democracy.

At North Dakota Boys State, delegates participate in hands-on learning activities including city and county government functions, disaster simulation exercises and the publication of a daily newspaper that is written and edited by delegates. In addition to this "learning by doing" process, delegates have the opportunity to experience speeches and debates from visiting dignitaries.

In addition to electing a governor, delegates also elected several other state office-holders including: Erik Hanson of Grand Forks as Lieutenant Governor, Brandt Vernon of Hazen as Secretary of State, Trenton McCloud of Rolla as State Treasurer, Benjamin Trenne of Grand Forks as Attorney General, Deane Bjornson of Cavalier as State Auditor, Trevor Boehm of McClusky as Commissioner of Agriculture, Andrew Brummond of Park River as Superintendent of Public Instruction and Ryan Nelson of Casselton as Public Service Commissioner.

NDSCS has been the host of Boys State for 18 consecutive years. Frequent visitors to the program include: former Buffalo Bills defensive end Phil Hanson, U.S. Senator John Hoeven, U.S. Senator Heidi Heitkamp and Lieutenant Governor Drew Wrigley.
