Exceptional community citizenship is one of the values that makes FFA, 4-H and Farm Bureau such successful organizations. These groups are partnering to bring the Ohio Youth Capital Challenge to you. Here is your chance to get involved and have a hands-on experience that will enable you to make your community a better place. Applicants must be in at least the ninth grade and between the ages of 14 and 18 during the 2016-2017 school year. Applicants are expected to have concern for local community issues and a desire to be more involved. Cost to youth is $30 upon selection. Applications must be received by January 5, 2017.
Up to 40 youth will be selected for the challenge. Participants will need to be ready to travel to Columbus for Phase One of the challenge. They will work in their assigned team during the following months developing a policy and presentation. Winning team members will come together at the 2017 Ohio State Fair to compete with their final presentation.
