About the Ohio Youth and Government program:

Youth & Government is a national government and politics program that promotes civic literacy as well as community service.

Ohio's YMCA Youth & Government program began in 1952 and reflects the idea that "democracy must be learned by each generation" – Ben Franklin. The Ohio YMCA Youth & Government program provides high school and middle school students with a unique opportunity to become acting state legislators, governors, lobbyists, lawyers, committee chairs. The students simulate all phases and positions of the actual state government. These students are challenged with many of the issues our real legislators must face in their elected offices.

Contest rules:

  • One entry per person
  • Contest submission deadline is 7:30 p.m. on November 8, 2022.
  • Personal information will only be used for contest purposes and not for ongoing marketing efforts, nor will it be shared with any other entity for those purposes
