Capture the Canvas!


MWCD Invites You to Capture the Canvas for a Chance to Win $1,000!

Memorial Day through Labor Day, you're encouraged to "Capture the Canvas"!! MWCD partnered with five local schools to encourage residents to get outdoors and explore the trails at MWCD parks. With materials given by MWCD, students painted canvases that will be on display on MWCD trails throughout the district. Participating schools and the locations of their artwork are:

  • Conotton Valley High School: Atwood Lake Park 
  • Lucas High School: Charles Mill Lake Park
  • New Philadelphia High School: Pleasant Hill Lake Park
  • Caldwell High School: Seneca Lake Park
  • Starlight School: Tappan Lake Park

You are encouraged to try and find all five canvases at each of the MWCD parks, but have a maximum of three entries per person. (One entry per person, per park.) Three winners will be randomly selected by September 12, and contacted via phone or email.

First Place: $1,000 Cash sponsored by Encino Energy!!

Second Place: A weekend stay at a deluxe log cabin at Pleasant Hill (based on availability)

Third Place: One-day boat rental from Clendening, Piedmont, Seneca, or Tappan Lake Marina

To enter, visit one of the MWCD park locations and search for the canvas on the trail. Once found, take a “selfie”, or have someone take your photograph. The photo must include yourself, along with the canvas in the background to prove you found the canvas and complete the survey below.

Good luck!
