NDA was the only Catholic school to have candidates chosen to represent Lucas and Wood counties. Participants represent more than 160 schools throughout the state.

“We created this board to give Ohio high school students an opportunity to learn about law and government and to hear their ideas,” Attorney General DeWine said. (

The mission of the Teen Ambassador Board is to provide Ohio’s future leaders with an inside look at Ohio law and government. The board is open to high school juniors and seniors from public, private, home, charter, and online schools located in Ohio. These ambassadors advise the Attorney General’s Office on issues relating to teens, and they work with their peers to develop solutions. They also attend presentations, hear from elected officials, interact with assistant attorneys general, and have the opportunity to participate in events around the state.
