The WVWS Signature Membership Exhibition, recently held at Eastern West Virginia Community and Technical College in Moorefield, featured two potential awards, which were determined by visitors who saw the exhibition this fall.
These People's Choice Awards were funded by two Hardy County-based businesses. The top prize of $250 was sponsored by Capon Valley Bank, headquartered in Wardensville, and the Runner-up award of $150 was sponsored by Hardy Telecommunications, headquartered in Lost River.
Kathryn Gillispie of Arbovale won the top award with "Poppies and Larkspur."
Doris Bright of Winchester, Va., formerly of Buckhannon, won the runner-up award with "Celebrate Spring."
