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.
