In Need of Badger Boys State Sponsors
Is your Post or local business(es) interested in sponsoring a student to attend Badger Boys State (BBS)? We are still looking for about 125 sponsors. Each year we have students who would like the opportunity to attend BBS, but do not have a sponsor.
If your Legion Post would be willing to sponsor one of these students please contact Sheri Hicks at Department Headquarters, (608) 745-1090.
