Citizenship Teen Opportunity: Ohio Youth Capital Challenge

The Ohio Youth Capital Challenge is now accepting applications and nominations for Ohio FFA members who want to learn more about government and public policy and make a difference in their community. Participants will learn how to identify local issues, create solutions, and follow the policy making process through state government. Youth from 4-H, FFA and the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation work in teams, with support from college-age mentors. In 2022 delegates will participate in a series of online modules with topics designed to help them have a hands-on advocacy experience. Each team will work together remotely and present their solutions for the opportunity to receive a cash scholarship.

Ohio 4-H and FFA members who are at in at least ninth grade and between the ages of 14-18 during the 2021-2022 school year are invited to apply or may be nominated by their teacher.

Applications will remain open through January 21, 2022. Apply or nominate a student today.
