Learn from experts, innovators, and leaders in the oil & gas industry as they discuss downstream and long-term impact of Marcellus & Utica Shale.
The Tri-State Shale Summit is a collaborative effort on behalf of Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia to bring together industry leaders to facilitate a discussion on the opportunities in the Marcellus & Utica Shale region. The Summit features engaging and enlightening panels and keynotes on topics such as regionalism, research & innovation, manufacturing, and workforce & education.

Beginning May 2, 2015, elementary school students across West Virginia participated in the nationwide entrepreneurship project, Lemonade Day. Lemonade Day is a Vision Shared program made possible by a grant from the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation. It is a fun, free, experiential learning program that teaches youth how to start, own, and operate their own business – a lemonade stand.
Each year, National Lemonade Day is observed on the first Sunday in May, when youth around the country take to the streets of their communities to open their lemonade stands put the business skills they have learned into practice. The goal of Lemonade Day is to give children of all socio-economic backgrounds, in all neighborhoods, the opportunity to start their own business and learn how to make money. The children are encouraged to “spend a little, save a little, and share a little.”
