A vegetarian plate is available, but will need to be requested when ordering tickets. Tickets are $15.00 each and are on sale now. You can order tickets by mailing in a check to the Knox SWCD, or by coming into the Knox SWCD office.

Knox SWCD holds a silent auction at Annual Meeting and all the proceeds go to the Agriculture Scholarship fund. A one thousand dollar scholarship is awarded yearly to a Knox County student as they pursue an environmental or agricultural degree. Last year, we awarded the scholarship to Caitlyn Gaddis who graduated from Fredericktown and is studying Animal Science/Pre-Vet Medicine from the University of Findlay. Please consider donating this year so we can reach our goal and help support our local students. Knox SWCD has provided scholarships since 2008 and we would like to continue this program.
Examples of what a donation could be are gift baskets, agricultural products, handmade items or gift cards. If you own your own business, a donated gift card would not only advertise your business but would bring in business. Any donation is appreciated no matter how big or small. If you are interested in donating, please email Amie Allen at email@example.com or call 740-393-6724. Your donated item will need to be dropped off to the Knox SWCD office on or before December 1st. We will be more than happy to pick up any donated item. We hope that you will consider supporting our cause as we continue to provide scholarships to the students in our community.
If you have any questions, please contact Amie Allen at the Knox SWCD office at (740) 393-6724 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope to see you there!
