Who Can be Nominated or Apply?
Delegates must be in at least the ninth grade and between the ages of 14 and 18 during the 2017-2018 school year. Delegates are expected to have concern for local community issues and a desire to be more involved. Cost to youth is $30 upon selection.

Delegate Nominations must be received by December 1, 2017.
Delegate Applications must be received by January 12, 2018.

Up to 40 youth will be selected for the challenge. Delegates 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. Teams then will come together in Columbus in early Spring 2018 to present at the semi-finals. Finalist teams will be invited to compete at the Ohio State Fair for cash prizes in late Summer 2018.
