Welcome to CCAWV

Our mission is to "maintain a statewide agency for the purpose of promoting the interest and general welfare of local county government through a variety of communication tools; to represent county government before the West Virginia Legislature, administrative agencies, and the federal government; to educate the public about the value and need for county programs and services; and to facilitate the exchange of problems, ideas and solutions among county officials."

April was “National County Government Month” and the County Commissioners’ Association of WV (CCAWV) hosted their annual essay contest for eighth grade students across West Virginia.

There are monetary awards for 1st ($300), 2nd ($250), and 3rd ($150) place student winners. There is also a monetary award ($300) for the 1st place winner’s Teacher to be used for classroom activities. Student participants were asked to type a 500-word essay entitled How Does My County Commission Make Life Better For Me?
