State seeks 2019 nominations for ‘Great Ohioans’
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A state board and foundation are seeking nominations for the 2019 class of “Great Ohioans.”
The Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board and Capitol Square Foundation say the award recognizes special Ohioans who have played a significant role in an event, or series of events, of lasting significance in world, American or Ohio history.
Nominees must have been born in Ohio or lived in the state for at least five years. The commemorated event in which a nominee participated must have happened at least 25 years previously.
The groups say all Ohioans are encouraged to participate in the nomination process.
The categories for nominations include government, military and public service as well as areas such as communications, education, sports, and entertainment, among others.
