The Clinton Historical Society Emil Schoch Award recognizes an individual or family in the Town of Clinton that has shown dedication to the conservation of the natural environment and historic resources as exemplified by Emil Schoch in his stewardship of his family’s land entrusted to his care.

- Established a farm plan in keeping with best management practices and manages that farm in accordance with those practices.
