FDSH students attend Boys State

These high school students from Fort Dodge Senior High participated in the 80th Annual American Legion Hawkeye Boys State at Camp Dodge in Johnston, Iowa, from June 9-14. They were selected based on their recommendations from school officials and members of the American Legion Post No. 130. American Legion Hawkeye Boys State is a weeklong “hands-on” experience in the operation of the democratic form of government, the organization of political parties, and the relationship of one to the other in shaping Iowa government. Through the American Legion Hawkeye Boys State objective of “learning by doing”, the young men learn about city, county, and state government. Pictured from left are Jonathon Madden, Geoffrey Astor, and Nathanial Madden.
