News & Notices


The Ohio Township Association Scholarship Program began in 2005. Many years prior to this, former board member Paul Smith and his wife, Ethel, gave the initial donation to the OTA Scholarship Fund, providing the groundwork for future scholarships. Currently, the scholarships are funded by donations from County Township Associations, personal donations, and proceeds from the OTA’s Annual Golf Outing.

Today, four $1,500 scholarships are awarded annually, two for Local Government Achievement and two for Academic Achievement. Among other requirements, each applicant must be a township resident and a high school senior planning to attend a two- or four-year Ohio college or university. For more eligibility information, see the PDFs below.

The scholarship application information can be found below! Please note that the application form will close at 11:45 p.m. on January 28, 2021.

For more information, or if you have questions, please reach out to Heather Frame at [email protected].

Nordonia Hills Community Halloween Trick or Treat Will be Held on October 31, from 6 to 8 pm

Halloween is more important than ever this year as we navigate the new normal together and are seeking opportunities to celebrate safely.  

The City of Macedonia, Sagamore Hills, Northfield Center, and Northfield Village have collaboratively agreed to a traditional Halloween Trick-or-Treat, which will be held on Saturday, October 31, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  Trick-or-Treaters are to approach homes with porch lights on only.  

We hope to provide parents a reliable source to help them celebrate the Halloween holiday in the most safe, fun way possible.  The following are some of Governor Dewine's "Celebrating Halloween" guidelines:

  • Children and those handing out candy should wear masks at all times.
  • Always maintain 6-feet of social distancing with those outside your household.
  • Wipe off candy wrappers with sanitizing wipes when you arrive home.  
  • Avoid eating homemade treats made by strangers. 
  • Limit the number of houses you visit.  
  • Avoid large gatherings of individuals outside your household.
  • If your child is at higher at-risk for COVID complications, contact your doctor before allowing participation.
  • Use creative ways to distribute treats, such as using a candy "slide".
  • Please visit the complete list of Recommendations for Celebrating Halloween:

We are asking all drivers to be extremely cautious when backing into and out of your driveway. Drive slower than the speed limit. Be extra cautious when taking corners and passing through crosswalks.


Not only does Halloween 2020 fall on a Saturday, it also happens to be a full moon AND daylight savings time. In addition to all this mystical magic, trick-or-treating will also occur during a blue moon this year, the second full moon of October!

The stars have clearly aligned, so put your scariest Halloween costumes on, decorate your house and conjure up a spell for a fantastically frightening evening.

Stay Safe and Stay Healthy.
