310x650 Communication

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."


Student participants are asked to type a 500-word essay on the topic.

"How does my county commission make life better for me?"

Take a class fieldtrip to a county commission meeting! Ask your county commissioners to come speak to the class! Find out what your county commission is working on in your county and encourage your students to write about it from the perspective of an 8 th grader and why it matters to them.

A committee of commissioners and CCAWV Staff will serve as judges of the contest. All entries must be emailed by 5:00 pm Friday, April 19, 2019 to qualify. (Please see complete rules attached)

Entries should be emailed to: jennifer@ccawv.org

For more information, please contact Vivian Parsons at CCAWV

Winners will be announced by April 29, 2019.
