West Virginia Speaks Up is a “Conference of Ideas” which was held on October 2 and 3, as part of the Rocket Boys Festival in Beckley, West Virginia. The festival invited 48 of West Virginia’s most motivated and enlightened minds to come to Beckley in the fall of 2013, each with one idea that will better our wild and wonderful state of West Virginia. Each speaker will have seven (7) minutes to present their idea and the steps needed to put it into action. Each presenter’s idea was recorded during the conference using many forms of media coverage during the event. Starting on October 15, the video recording will be added to the Rocket Boys Festival Web Site and other web based sites (YouTube, sponsor sites, media sites throughout the state) at a rate of one per week for the following forty-eight weeks. The festival plans to help promote the best of the ideas presented throughout the upcoming year. The Rocket Boys Festival believes that “Ideas are the Pathway” to West Virginia’s future and West Virginia Speaks Up will be one of the first steps onto that path.
