50 youths were chosen to visit the Ohio Capitol and have an overnight stay in Columbus. Teams were formed and a 'Challenge' project was identified. Teams will then compete at the 2013 Ohio State Fair for academic scholarships or seed money to implement Challenge Projects.

Bailey Montoya, son of Luciano and Christy Montoya of Farmersville, was chosen to attend. Bailey interacted with state leaders at a legislative breakfast, and began work on a local plan.

Ohio Youth Capitol Challenge is an exciting new program to encourage knowledge and skills in citizenship.
