Schools can seek grants to help visit the Ohio Supreme Court in downtown Columbus. The grants would defray the transportation costs for student field trips to the Ohio Judicial Center at 65 South Front Street.
The Court’s Visitor Education Center gives students - fourth grade and above - an inside look at Ohio courts. School tours include student participation in a mock trial, and a courtroom visit that features artwork portraying the state’s history, culture, and commerce.
Grant applications must be completed online by authorized teachers or school administrators.
The deadline to apply is Sept. 28, 2018, and the grants can be used for student trips through the end of June 2019.
The grant amount is based on the one-way distance from the school to the Thomas J. Moyer Ohio Judicial Center at 65 S. Front St. in downtown Columbus. The three funding awards, based on distance, are: less than 50 miles - $220; 51 to 100 miles - $330; 101 or more miles - $440.
This is the eighth time grants have been offered to visit the Moyer Judicial Center.
