The mission of the West Virginia Division of Culture and History is to identify, preserve, protect, promote and present the ideas, arts and artifacts of West Virginia’s heritage, building pride in our past accomplishments and confidence in our future.
Welcome from Commissioner Randall Reid-Smith.
Welcome to March!
The Division of Culture and History has plenty going on this month and we hope that you will be able to join us!
March 3 and 4 we host the statewide Poetry Out Loud competition at the Culture Center. This year, 39 high school students are competing.
We have History Bowl regional tournaments in Hardy County and in Barboursville; the exciting all-state play-in will be in Buckhannon on March 18.
We celebrate our state's history and our history heroes on March 9 at History Day at the Legislature. We will salute the History Heroes at 9 a.m. in the Culture Center theater.
And I would like to offer special thanks to the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra for saluting our agency and me at its "Country Roads, Take Me Home" gala this month. I am honored and grateful for their appreciation of the work we are doing to support, promote and grow the state's vibrant arts community.
