Big Tree Contest
Coshocton SWCD's Big Tree Contest is held annually.  If you think you have the largest tree in Coshocton County, stop by the Coshocton SWCD Office at 724 S. Seventh Street, Coshocton and enter the "Big Tree" Contest.  Entry forms area accepted from May 1 to mid-July.  An award is presented to the owners of the largest tree in the county, regardless of species.  A custom made plaque and recognition at the District's Annual Meeting will be awarded to the owners of the "Big Tree".  Entry Forms may be obtained through the SWCD office or on this website during contest months. 

Coshocton County Fair

Each year
the Coshocton SWCD's Fair Display contains a Mystery Photo.  If you can guess the location of the farm in the photograph your name will be entered into a drawing to win 2 complimentary tickets for the SWCD's Annual Meeting and Banquet.  2014's farm location was the Bill and Caroline Daugherty Farm located on County Road 12 in Millcreek Township.  Congratulations to Kim Lacy for winning the 2014 drawing!
Be sure to stop by the SWCD's booth this year to see if you know whose farm is on display as the Mystery Photo.
