Lanscape Olympics

On October 12th and 13th, our Landscape Architecture & Construction students participated in the Ohio High School Landscape Olympics (OHLO). OHLO tests students' skills through hands-on, competitive events designed by industry professionals. The competition broadens the high school education experience and introduces students to the many opportunities offered by a career in the green industry. 

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 OGIA.

Congratulations to all of our DACC competitors!
