The CCAWV Essay Contest is held annually in recognition of National County Government Month each April. One of CCAWV’s goals is to increase information and public awareness about county government and the office of County Commissioner.  As an initiative of this goal we are excited to partner with West Virginia educators to encourage students to learn and write about their local county governing body, the County Commission.  Student participants are asked to type a 500-word essay on the topic and a panel of CCAWV Staff judge the essays. This year, we had close to 200 entries from 8 counties. We awarded first, second and third place along with four honorable mention awards.

One of CCAWV’s goals is to increase information and public awareness about county government and the office of County Commissioner. As an initiative of this goal we are excited to partner with West Virginia educators to encourage students to learn and write about their local county governing body, the County Commission. (Teachers, for your convenience, we are attaching our brochure about county commission responsibilities.)

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 20, 2018 to qualify. (Please see complete rules attached)
