Updated 3-12-2020 7:00pm

The well-being, health, and safety of our students, staff, and everyone who supports American Legion Jersey Boys State is of the most importance to us. Currently, we are continuing to plan for our 75th annual session to take place, as scheduled, on June 21-26, 2020. We are working with public health officials, the State of New Jersey, the American Legion, and Rider University to closely monitor how the coronavirus pandemic could affect our program.

In the coming months, we currently have several county orientation meetings planned for our students to learn more about the program. The status of these meetings is unchanged, but please continue to monitor our website ( for the most up-to-date and accurate information regarding the status of these meetings and the 2020 session of American Legion Jersey Boys State.

We greatly appreciate your cooperation as we continue to monitor the coronavirus pandemic and how it could affect American Legion Jersey Boys State.
