COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio’s attorney general is urging high schoolers to apply to become members of a board that advises his office on teen issues.
Republican Attorney General Mike DeWine says his office is now accepting applications for its Teen Ambassador Board.
Students who will be juniors or seniors in high school during the 2016-2017 academic year are eligible to apply. The teens can attend public, private, charter or online schools.
DeWine says about 170 students joined the program in the current academic year.
Board members meet twice in Columbus during their one-year term. They work on solutions to problems facing Ohioans and meet with DeWine and elected officials.
DeWine says the board members get an inside look at law and government.
Applications are due May 31.
