Dewine announces student ambassadors
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine recently announced that more than 300 students representing 52 Ohio counties have been named to his office's Teen Ambassador Board for the upcoming school year.
The participants represent more than 160 schools throughout the state. The mission of the board is to provide Ohio's future leaders with an inside look at law and government.
The board is open to high school juniors and seniors from public, private, home, charter, and online schools located in the state. Members advise the Attorney General's office on issues relating to teens and they work with their peers to develop solutions. They also attend presentations, hear from elected officials, interact with assistant attorneys general and have the opportunity to participate in events around the state.
This year's Teen Ambassador Board kick-off meeting will take place in August. A list of the 2018-19 board members and more information is available on the Attorney General's website at www.ohioattorneygeneral.gov/.
