MORGANTOWN -

U.S. Cellular and Morgantown Mayor Jim Manilla have announced the winners of the Fourth Annual Black History Month Art Contest.

The art was on display throughout the month of February in U.S. Cellular stores in Morgantown.

The winners were Miah Kaehler, Jaheim Felton and Camden Fitzgerald.

"Miah, my daughter, is a singer and loves Billy Holiday's voice," said Joe Kaehler about his daughter winning first prize in the contest. "She was going through the Black History Month and influential African Americans in U.S. history and picked that picture and made a wonderful picture."

Jaheim Felton drew Usher and won second place, with Camden Fitzgerald coming in third with his portrait of Michael Jackson. Fitzgerald said he picked Michael Jackson because he's his favorite singer.

The winners $500 for first place, $200 for second, and $150 for third.
