Livestreaming Events

Each year several events at LABS are broadcast live and then later archived on the official LABS YouTube channelĀ (http://youtube.com/laboysstate). These broadcast events range in type from guest speaker presentations to state officer candidate speeches to convocations with Louisiana Girls State. Each year varies slightly in the content and sessions being broadcast, but a sample schedule from the 2017 session is listed below.

The schedule for 2018 livestreaming events will be published in late May 2018. Other events may be added to the list later as scheduling and resources allow. For the most up-to-date list including any possible changes the schedule listed here, check the Louisiana Boys State Facebook page leading up to and during the program. Links to each event will be posted across social media platforms in the hour before the event begins. Delays or cancellations will be announced on Facebook and Twitter.

2017 Livestreaming Schedule
