The Vizzi Awards is presented by James Rumsey Technical Institute, Blue Ridge Community and Technical College, WV EDGE & the Regional Printing Institute. The mission of the VIZZI Awards is to create a BUZZ about student achievement in visual arts. The Vizzi consists of three categories covering eleven different contests. Students who are 10th – 12th graders and live in Berkeley, Jefferson or Morgan counties are eligible to enter.
The Berkeley Art Works, a project of the Berkeley Arts Council, is the realization of the long-held dream of the arts community in Martinsburg and Berkeley County West Virginia: to have a community-based arts facility that supports local and regional artists, brings quality arts experiences for the members of the public, and provides a wide range of arts learning experiences for local residents, artists, and artisans.
