Made in West Virginia Awards
Meet the winners of the 2013 Made in West Virginia Awards.
We’re at it again. After the success of our first Made in West Virginia Awards in fall 2012, we again paired up with the Tamarack Foundation to find and champion the best products made in the Mountain State. A panel of experts deliberated over a pool of outstanding options, looking for products that embody craftsmanship, creativity, quality, beauty, and innovation. Now we reveal the winners, from face-puckering pickles to awe-inspiring instruments.
