  • June 13-18 at Ohio State University Columbus campus
  • June 20-25 at the Ohio State University ATI campus

ExploreAg also will be hosting three, three-day sessions over a weekend in July and September. Locations are to be determined but these events will be held on a university or college campus:

  • July 9-11
  • July 16-18
  • Sept. 10-12

ExploreAgDuring the sessions, high school students will interact with and learn from internationally known teachers, scientists and researchers and visit labs, fields and factories to learn about career opportunities in food and agriculture and related industries.

Program costs, which include on-campus accommodations, meals, staffing, course supplies, program materials and transportation have been generously sponsored by the Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation as a part of its commitment to attracting young leaders to the agriculture industry.

Note: The goal is for all programming to be in person, however, programming is subject to cancellation or alteration based on the current COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions.


If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington, D.C.

We go to a lot of Farm Bureau events, and there’s a lot of camaraderie built because you’re meeting with people who have similar interests and goals.
