First Lady Cathy Justice is inviting all West Virginians age 19 and up to participate in the 2022 Best Bow Christmas Contest. Eligible West Virginians are encouraged to create their best Christmas bow, which will be hung on a special “bow tree” at the Culture Center in Charleston during the holiday season.
The contest will be part of the First Lady’s Artist Series initiative, which encourages all disciplines and mediums of art.
The bows and the Christmas tree will be unveiled in conjunction with Joyful Night, the annual holiday celebration at the State Capitol held on Dec. 3. The three winning bows will receive a cash prize. In January 2023, all of the bows will be donated to an assisted living facility, hospital, or Veteran’s organization.
Artists may mail their entries to: Elizabeth Yeager, Department of Arts, Culture, and History, The Culture Center, 1900 Kanawha Blvd, East, Charleston, WV 25305.
With their submission, artists must include their contact information (name, phone number, email, and mailing address).
To be eligible for judging, bows must be received by Nov. 18.
For questions, contact Yeager by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
