The 2021 Ohio Youth Capital Challenge is now accepting applications and nominations for 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 2021 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 scholarship.
4-H members who are in at least ninth grade and between the ages of 14-18 during the 2020-21 school year are invited to apply.
Applications will remain open until January 18, 2021
