Held at the Nationwide and Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Leadership Center at Ohio State University, students and parents will learn to improve communication with each other, develop leadership skills and prepare for success beyond high school, such as how to find and apply for scholarship applications, and what can be done now to make applications stand out later. A tour of Ohio Stadium is included with this conference.
