HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia inventors will compete for prizes of up to $1,000 at a festival in Huntington.

The “West Virginia Makes Festival” is scheduled downtown Friday. The design challenge will reward creative thinkers whose inventions most impress a panel of judges.

The event is sponsored by the Robert C. Byrd Institute for Advanced Manufacturing, Advantage Valley, the city of Huntington, and Marshall University.

Byrd Institute CEO Charlotte Webber says the event is expected to attract “tinkerers and hobbyists of all ages.”
