October 15 & 16, 2020

OSU ATI, Wooster, Ohio


ONLA's 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. 


Competing in OHLO

OHLO is open to all Ohio High Schools and Career Centers with horticulture programs. Single teams from all participating schools may compete in all events, or just a few. Competitive events test the student’s abilities to interact in a hands on environment. Events are planned, implemented and scored by industry sponsors using guidelines generated by ONLA.
