Awards & Scholarships
OASBO offers several award and scholarship opportunities to school business officials as a means to formally recognize them for professional accomplishments and/or for service to their profession and community.
Open to all Ohio school business officials, we encourage you to apply for these programs - many of which also result in scholarships for college-bound high school seniors. It's a win-win for the SBO and the school district!
