The kid’s art contest was open to children from kindergarten to fifth grade who wanted to showcase what they love about West Virginia through their artwork. The cub reporter contest was for children in grades 6-8. Their stories introduced the audience to truly unique West Virginia products. A video contest involved teens in grades 9-12 and allowed the students to film genuine West Virginia activities, sights or people.
