March is Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month and the Seneca County Opportunity Center welcomes you to celebrate alongside of us.  In lieu of our biggest awareness event, the annual Celebrity Basketball Game, where local celebrities play with our Special Olympics team, the Seneca Arrows, we are hosting a community wide scavenger hunt.


The Scavenger Hunt is built around our March DD Awareness theme, #SenecaCountyStrong, which honors the strong, welcoming relationships we have within our community. Because of these strong relationships, we are blessed to have a community that includes people with developmental disabilities. 


We are encouraging people to complete in teams of 2-5 people.  All are welcome to participate! The hunt will begin on March 8th and you have until March 30th to finish. You may complete at your own pace.

  • The hunt will take you to 18 local locations, each with a yard sign featuring how SCOC is connected to that site and a short story highlighting the people we serve with developmental disabilities. To complete the hunt:

  • You must visit all 18 locations. The order in which you visit does not matter, and each site is marked with a yard sign. Each sign features the Opportunity Center’s connection with that location, and has an optional QR code to scan for more information! Please note that a cell phone is not necessary to participate.

  • Collect all 18 of the red awareness letters found on the signs

  • Take at least one photo of you and your team on the hunt. Post your photo online with #SenecaCountyStrong or email to

  • Write down awareness message at the bottom.

  • Turn in your entry form by email, dropping off to the Opportunity Center at 780 E. CR 20, or by mail, and you will be entered to win a prize!

  • Winners will be announced on March 31st!


Entry Forms can be found on our Opportunity Center Facebook Page, on our website or by contacting Natalie Ranker at or or 419-447-7521 ext. 1172.


We wish you good luck and happy hunting! Thank you for helping the Seneca County Opportunity Center spread awareness and celebrating National Disabilities Awareness Month.
