In Zivich v. Mentor Soccer Club, Inc., 82 Ohio St. 3d 367, 372, 696 N.E.2d 201, 205 (Ohio 1988), the Ohio Supreme Court has held that a consent or release signed on behalf of a minor child by a parent, guardian or legal representative in favor of a non-profit organization is valid. Because of the agreements in this Entry Form, the Sponsors are able to offer the opportunity for a minor child to participate in this state-wide Design Competition without the risks and overwhelming costs of litigation to the Sponsors. Public policy does not forbid such an agreement. In fact, public policy supports it. The enforcement of these agreements may well promote more active involvement by participants and their families, which, in turn, promotes the overall quality and safety of these activities.
