CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – An exhibition of postcard art created by West Virginia students is on display in the state Capitol.

Gov. Jim Justice’s office and the West Virginia Department of Arts, Culture and History issued a call for the designs last year. They asked students from Kindergarten through 12th grade to submit an entry featuring their favorite place or activity in the state.

Selected pieces will be used by the West Virginia Tourism Office to invite travelers to the state. Winners were selected in December and will receive gift cards for art materials.

The Almost Heaven Art Exhibition is now on display outside the Governor’s Reception Room on the walls of the West Rotunda of the Capitol.
