COSHOCTON -- The Coshocton County Chamber of Commerce is now accepting nominations for the prestigious "Coshoctonian" Award. All nominations should be submitted by Friday, March 9.

The award recognizes and honors an individual's long-term contribution to the well-being and economic climate of Coshocton County. This year's recipient will be honored at the Chamber's Annual Dinner on Friday, April 20.

Letters of nomination should be addressed to Mr. Robin Coffman at the Coshocton County Chamber of Commerce, 401 Main St., Coshocton, OH 43812. All nominations should include an outline of the individual's accomplishments as there are no nomination forms. All nominees must be residents of Coshocton County. Re-nomination of potential candidates would be appropriate and is encouraged with an updated outline of their accomplishments. A committee consisting of Chamber representatives, city and county officials, and a previous award winner will select this year's recipient.

Edward E. Montgomery was the first recipient of the Coshoctonian Award in 1983 and the Rev. Robert Millspaugh was last year's honoree. Anyone having questions about the Coshoctonian Award should call the Chamber office at 740-622-5411.
