Ohio High School Landscape Olympics

Thursday, November 2 & Friday, November 3, 2017

OSU ATI Campus, Wooster, OH

The Ohio High School Landscape Olympics (OHLO) tests students' skills through hands-on, competitive events designed by industry professionals. OHLO broadens the high school education experience and introduces students to the many opportunities offered by a career in the green industry. 

This two-day event welcomed more than 150 students and 17 schools in 2016. The event includes ten indoor and outdoor competitions, a career exploration fair, kick-off party, and awards ceremony. 



OHLO would not be possible without the generous support of green industry businesses and associations.
