- Price Increase on Buckeye Boys State
The cost per boy
at Buckeye Boys State was recently increased from $265.00 per boy to
$300.00 per boy, a $35.00 increase. The increase was necessary due
to increased fees charged by Bowling Green State University for hosting
the program and not by the American Legion. This is the first
increase in Boys State costs in five years.
