Fishbowl Grant

| March 31, 2017


The Pocahontas County Chamber of Commerce will sponsor the 4th “FISH BOWL” Grant  Program in the Marlinton Municipal Building on Thursday evening, May 4, 2017 beginning at 6:00 p.m.

The SNOWSHOE FOUNDATION is providing a $500.0 Grant. We are seeking contestants that already own a business and wish to expand or persons that would like to start a business and could use some cash to get started.  The contestants will make a 3-5 minute presentation to the audience about their current business or their proposed business and how they would use the grant money.  Each contestant will have a table to make a display.


Each contestant is encouraged to invite their friends and family to attend the event.  Each attendee will pay a $10.00 fee.  They will be served a light dinner, and they will vote for the contestants.  The contestant with the most votes will be awarded the grant of $500.00 as well as all of the attendee fees.


To obtain a registration form, please send an e-mail to:  or call the Chamber Office on Monday, Wednesday or Friday afternoons at 304-799-2509. You may also download the registration form here: FISH BOWL Grant Registration2017
