BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) - Organizers of the Buckeye Boys State program are weighing whether to move the annual summertime gathering to a new home.

The American Legion sponsors the program that brings in more than 1,000 Ohio high school juniors to learn about how government works.

The event has been at Bowling Green State University since 1978.

The head of the Buckeye Boys State program says Bowling Green and Miami University have made bids to host the event.

Gerald White tells The Sentinel-Tribune in Bowling Green (https://bit.ly/25Do7c4 ) that negotiations are underway but there has been no decision made on moving the program.
