He will try to unseat Mr Clegg from the position he has held for the Liberal Democrats since 2005.
Mr O'Mara is a long-serving Labour member and has been a candidate in Sheffield Council elections.
Hallam Constituency Labour Party chairman Jane Thomas said: “It great the we have a young, local candidate who will carry the Labour Party’s message of a better deal for the many and not the few in Sheffield Hallam.
“Jared has a strong record of campaigning for the rights of disabled people in Sheffield and will bring experience of community involvement that few candidates can offer.
“Hallam voters came close to electing a Labour MP in 2015. Once again we have a strong, Sheffield candidate who is committed to serving the people of Hallam.”
Mr Clegg won the seat with 22,215 votes, beating Labour's Oliver Coppard who came second with 19,862.
