The Ohio Governor's art show involves over 1,112 high schools. There are over 12,000 regional entries from 15 regions and approximately 2,500 are selected to enter the state judging. State jurors then select 300 for the actual exhibition with 25 of the 300 chosen to receive the Governor's Award of Excellence. Wow, Katie's project was one of the 300...out of 12,000 entries!
Scholarships are offered to seniors by over 30 universities and colleges of art. The selection of students to be offered scholarships is left strictly up to those institutions who offer them. The Governor's Exhibition is merely a vehicle through which schools and students are brought together.
The exhibition opens at the James A. Rhodes State Office Tower, across from the State Capitol, in April, and closes at the end of May. At the exhibition opening, students receive Awards of Excellence and scholarship awards. We wish all the best for you, Katie!

EAGLE SCOUT JACOB TETZLOFF
For his Eagle Scout Project, Jacob Owen Tetzloff a resident of Castalia, Ohio and a member of Boy Scout Troop 24, wanted to improve an area used to educate youngsters about wildlife, at Back to the Wild, Wildlife Rehabilitation and Nature Education Center.
The project area was made out of old railroad ties, and separated a bird feeding area and educational center from the driveway and parking lot. The railroad ties held back the mulch from the gravels, and was also used as a seating area for young students during their tour of the facility. Jake's project was to replace the railroad ties with a 3-layer wall of 8” X 12” concrete pavers.
“The railroad ties were unsightly, rotting, very slippery when wet, and posed a danger of splinters to the youngsters when seated on them.”,Jacob said. “The 8” X 12” pavers ensured the youngsters have a safe, dry, splinter-free, and appealing area to sit on while being taught about Wildlife.”
Jacob is 17-years-old, and the son of Pam and Glen Tetzloff, of Wahl Rd, Sandusky, Ohio, attends Margaretta High School where he is a Senior. During his high school career, Tetzloff was on the golf, baseball and wrestling teams, and is also a member of the Marching Band, Concert Band, and Choir.
He is also active at Sandusky Church of the Nazarene, plays both drums and guitar during their Sunday morning Praise service, as well as volunteers as a member of the District Impact Team, a group of 48 youngsters that travels throughout the State performing for other Nazarene Churches.
Jacob joined Boy Scouts in 2009 and has earned 33 merit badges.
