West Virginia is consistently among the top three states for obese residents and students.

An awards luncheon being held today at the West Virginia Cultural Center will honor Boone, Clay, Grant, Hardy, Lewis, Mineral, Monongalia, Pendleton and Wyoming counties.

The awards given include the School Meals Initiative Award, Local Wellness Policy Award, and Breakfast and Lunch Participation Awards.
