Teen ambassador board seeks applicants

COLUMBUS — Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine has announced that his office is now accepting applications for its Teen Ambassador Board.

Ohio high school students who will be juniors or seniors during the 2018-2019 school year are eligible to apply. The deadline is May 31.

“This is an opportunity for students to learn more about government, meet new people and share their insights and perspectives,” DeWine said. “We encourage interested students to apply.”

The mission of the Ohio Attorney General’s Teen Ambassador Board is to provide Ohio’s future leaders with an inside look at Ohio law and government. Board members serve a one-year term and convene twice in Columbus. They attend presentations, hear from elected officials, advise the office on issues relating to teens and work with their peers to develop solutions.

Past participants have given presentations on apps and social media platforms used by teens as part of the Ohio Attorney General’s Two Days in May Conference on Victim Assistance and Law Enforcement Conference.
