Region 10

Ohio Summit



George Wells




In response to the specific academic needs of talented and gifted students, a program to encourage the development of leadership, communication, and problem solving skills through a simulation of the inner workings of Ohio’s legislature was created.


Through this program (Ohio Legislative Summit), we hope to foster a sense of cooperation and collaboration among both teachers and students in the school districts that participate. Students will research and problem-solve to prose a bill that will be presented before a model legislative session comprised of their peers. Since students will represent the concerns of Ohio, their knowledge of state issues will be applied. Their understanding of state and government will be enhanced as they debate and vote on bills brought before the legislative body.


Meetings are 3 times a year and are TBA.
Membership Information:
Membership is free for any school that wants to participate.
