For many years the West Virginia Christian Education Association (WVCEA), affiliated with the American Association of Christian Schools, has graciously invited CHEWV members to participate in their Fine Arts Festivals. However, CHEWV is not a member of the AACS. Therefore, our Senior High students are not eligible to advance to the National Competition at Bob Jones University.
Nevertheless, we are graciously invited to participate at the state level, giving home schoolers an opportunity to improve talents and earn state-level commendation – which can be valuable on college applications.
Each student is critiqued and rated by at least two judges who have expertise in the area of entry. The ratings are then averaged to determine whether the student will be given a Superior Award, an Excellent Award, or a rating. At the Senior and Junior High Levels, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places are also awarded.
