Boys State Creed
American Citizenship is my most priceless possession. I believe in the Constitutional form of government in the United States of America which guarantees me the right to worship God as I choose and, as a citizen, equal opportunity and equal educational rights.
It is my obligation to participate in and contribute my effort to the civic and political welfare of my community, state, and nation.
I resolve to learn and understand government and the civic needs of my community, and I hereby dedicate myself to the task of arousing and maintaining a like interest in my fellow citizens.
Therefore, may the experience of Boys' State be ever with me as a reminder of my obligation to my country.
