Barbour County Pitch Contest:
In 2019, the Barbour County Development Authority developed a new program to encourage entrepreneurship in the county. 5,000 dollars were raised in the community to be awarded to creative ideas to help new and existing businesses grow. At the end of the contest, three local entrepreneurs were awarded funds.
