CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Middle school students from across West Virginia will participate in a summer camp commemorating the state's 150th anniversary.
The week-long West Virginia Ambassadors Camp will be held June 17 through June 21 at the University of Charleston.
The West Virginia Department of Education says students will learn about the state's history. Also planned are classes taught by West Virginia artisans.
Two students from each county will be selected to participate in the camp.
These students will be expected to serve as ambassador when they return home. They will participate in such activities as presentations at school-wide assemblies and classroom events at elementary schools.
