The 5 areas available for participation are below.  The most important section to read on each of these pages is not the individual lists of options, but the general rules for each in the top section.  Each area has its own unique set of rules.  The WVCEA strictly follows these rules in all festivals.  Since the information on these pages is meant as only an overview, once an interest is shown in a category it is necessary to go HERE and review the complete rules and guidelines for each category.
