Join in West Virginia’s 156th Birthday Celebration
Happy Birthday, West Virginia! West Virginia officially became a state on June 20, 1863 and what better way to celebrate the state’s 156th birthday than with a special challenge? In honor of our great state, you’re invited to participate in the West Virginia Week Challenge.
Governor Justice is asking all who love West Virginia to spend the week letting the world see the West Virginia we know. From Friday, June 14 through Thursday, June 20, you’re invited to participate in the West Virginia Week Challenge. It’s a seven-day social challenge designed to drive engagement and inspire travel to West Virginia. Best of all, it’s easy to participate!
