The 2017 WVCEA Elementary and Junior High Fine Arts Festivals were held on April 21 at Cross Lanes Christian School.  Eight students represented CHEWV in several categories for a total of 24 entries!  It was an exciting event and a valuable learning experience as these students were critiqued on entries that ranged from piano solos to garment construction.

Elementary participants can be awarded superior and excellent ribbons; junior high students have an additional opportunity to place 1st, 2nd, or 3rd.  CHEWV representatives earned a total of eight superior and seven excellent ratings, as well as five 1st place and one 3rd place. 

Congratulations are in order for Caleb Adkins, Kitoria Johnson, Ryland Luikart, Shaylin Spargo, Christian Barnhouse, Evie Graves, Aydan Hines, and Sharah Spargo!
